I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since I last got to see you and hear your voice. I still miss you every day. I don’t think that will ever change.

I talk about you often with your niece and nephews so that they know you through my memories and love for you. You would’ve loved them.

I love you & will never forget the ultimate sacrifice you made for me and the rest of the city of Atlanta.

Your sister & best friend
