Its still so hard for me to believe that you are gone : ( all the times we have spent together talking and laughing enjoying life will be what I miss the most. you always told me and made me feel there nothing greater then having a sister like me to look out for and care for. you always made me see my value and understand the meaning of unconditional love, and for that I will always and forever be grateful. Until we meet again Big Bro I will always remember you and love you my heart.
