Oh! Big Brother, when I heard the message of your passing, it took me a while to pick myself up off the floor, then that song by Smokey Robinson "Really Gonna Miss You" came to mind, because I'm really going to miss you. Oh! the laughter we would have on the phone, how you would always call me Vampira, due to my sun allergy. This is so difficult, but I know you've gone to a better place. I will cherish your memory always. See you on the other side. I Love You, your little sis.
