Sis....my heart is hurting so much because of your loss. You were always so caring and giving. The last time I saw you, you were giving to me because David and I were both out of work, even though you were not feeling good yourself. You are free now. While I am happy for you, I am very sad for us. Soar with the angels Sis. I love you and miss you beyond words. Till we meet again.
