    Sweet Baby Girl little sister, I am so proud to have been your BFF at THE LAKE….
    I will miss you so much.
    All the great laughter and a little bit of tears we shared. Our shared feelings were so important to me too and I will cherish and remember all of them forever.
    Our bond was strong from the first time we met and it grew stronger as time went by. I watched you and wished I could be as strong as you were. You said you’d teach me how and you did. I value ever day I was privileged to call you my friend. Our time was short but our love for each other filled those years as if it had been a lifetime.
    I know the suffering you had while here but now the Lord has you right where you belong with him and all the pain and suffering is gone.
    My sweet sweet Baby Girl I will miss you.
    Save me a place near you so we can continue laughing forever and ever.
