I am just a girl who misses her sister<3

Today it has been 26 yrs since I lost my best friend and my only superhero... Her name was Lisa Sandel, my sister... This angel from God molded me into who I am today.

She was my role model in each and every way...

She was my inspiration to try to be the best person I could be...

She was always there for me as only a sister could be...

I still see your smile and hear your laughter and I only hope I can be as wonderful of a person as you were...

I love and miss you Lisa each and everyday...

I am just a girl who misses her sister.....<3
