    Dear Tammie I was only three when you were born I was so excited to ride the train all the way to Kansas just to get to hold my Sissy’s baby as you grew I tried to take care of you and then we fought because you stole my candy and my Barbie clothes then we grew and shared our teenage years dancing and singing to the top of our lungs then one time you sat on my purple people eater and broke it I still have it it’s one of my precious memories of some 35 years ago and then we grew into adulthood and shared many experiences together like sitting on the beach in Virginia just talkin and swimming in the ocean working at Daniel’s Den side by side I just can’t believe I’ll never see you come through my door or hear you say Auntie Bonnie where are you and your little laughter that followed I hope you know how precious you are to me my heart is broken I will miss you so much I wish we could go fishing just one more time I love you honey you’ve always been my little sister I don’t know what I’m going to do without you
