    The day has finally come where I have to say goodbye to your physical body. Wow, I can’t believe this is real that this is now my reality. From the first moment we met, we instantly clicked. You were my protector, my alibi, one of my biggest supporters etc. In your eyes I could do no wrong. Whenever I needed you, you were there, no matter what! The love and bond that we shared was one that can never be replaced nor duplicated even if I tried. When no one else understood, you did. When no one else cared, you did. You were the best big brother a sister could ever ask for. Now, you ran away plenty of guys and threatened half of Virginia to not mess with me; but, you always made sure I was happy and if I was happy you were happy. You always wanted to see me happy and striving to be a better me with each passing day. On today, I promise to remember you for your loving heart and supportive spirit. I will do my best to continue to make everyone laugh, as you would do. I will continue to look out for Ma and the kids; but, imma let Shaun handle the girl aka Bee lol. I will always love and miss you.

    Your BabySis
