To My Ju.
My beautiful, loving and compassionate sister, I miss and love you so much.
I miss your voice, your smile, your compassion and how selfless you were. You always listened to me when I needed a ear. Your shoulders were always available when I needed to cry. You always helped in any and every way possible, without ever judging me or anyone else. A beautiful soul inside and out. An angel that walked this earth with me for 36 years of my life. I love you to the moon and back 100 times, and again once more my queen. Love your youngest sister.
