You were a shining light in our family for many years. Throughout the many joys, laughter, and the tears, I looked up to you, loved you with all of my heart, respected you as my oldest sister, and cherished our friendship. It pains me deeply that we will be separated for a while, I want you here with us.! But I know deep in my heart that this earth was never your home. Whatever sufferings and sadness you experienced throughout your life are gone forever. All of those talks we had about what it would be like to be in the presence of holiness you are now experiencing. You, my dearest sister, will live in the presence of the Lord forever! I will see you again soon.❤️

I miss you so very much sis. I take comfort in knowing that our last spoken words to each other were “I love you”. May God give peace and comfort to your children and grandchildren.
