A Sister is too special.... it hurts for me to type this phrase, My eyes are filled now as I know you feel the same. You laughed as kids, pushed each other down and then were the first one to extend a hand.... you had eating contests and made your parents crazy and shared a bond so powerful, nothing could sever the love.. If anything, the love is more solid and entwined, and no-matter how far in distance you are, nothing will ever separate your spirited love for your sister... she remains with you in your heart & mind forever...
