    Hey sis. I know you are having an amazing time in heaven. I know you are pain-free, I know you have that peace which surpasses all understanding, I know you have more joy than you have ever experienced, I know you are eating much better food than all the good stuff you had to deny yourself in these latter years, I know you are seeing better sites and scenery and landscape than anything you thought you missed out on here on earth. I wish we had more time. Thanks for all the love, the lessons and just for being the best big sis a girl could ask for. I’m sorry for all the things said and unsaid. We’re taking care of Tendo and we will do everything to make sure he is the boy and eventually man you always hoped he would become. I love you, I miss you, and see you again one bright day. Sisters are friends forever.
