I remember the hours we spent relaxing under trees at the George Washington Carver Memorial State Park. I wish one the same comfort under this tree.

My dear sister, I will never stop loving you. Already I have thought of a dozen times when I couldn’t wait to tell you a funny story so we could laugh and laugh all afternoon. Anyone who ever thought the number of years and miles that separated us kept us from being “real” sisters never saw us giggle the entire afternoon away. I miss you so much, but I also know I have to share. You’re with John now, and Mother and Daddy and GeeGee. I’ll see you all soon. Until then I will keep you in my heart. Oh, how I will keep you in my heart.
