Miss you mom
Well mom you saw how much big sister was suffering and as much as you tried to call her home many times she kept fighting strong and gave another 6ish years more to us. No matter how much we fought with each other we were still there when we needed one another. Don’t worry mom I didn’t leave her side I was there till she caught her other ride.
I’m not gonna say why because I know that it was time. She suffered enough and she lived her life. No more hearing “That’s my little big sister” anymore.
Take care of her mom I know your still going to be on her butt and again saving it.
