Merry Christmas Big Brother

It would not be Christmas without spending it with you; just like it would not be Christmas without cookies from Judi and Mike and calling home on Christmas Eve. I miss "Our Family" times and everyone being together.

The Family got together this summer and like always we had a great time. Our Momma will be 89 years old in 2019, and she has become very fragile and frail. I have noticed that she has not posted any messages to you this year, but not because she does not love and miss you. She is just having a harder time and her memory is getting bad. Made me sad as I know it was the last time that I will get to see her and spend time with her since I can't always go home as much as I would like to. It also made me sad that she will never see "Justice Served" for you in the California Justice System. She has stood up for you, fought for you, written a gazillion letters to Senators, Congressmen, Governors for 23 years seeking Justice for you and other victims. I know that she will soon be going home to be with you.

You are forever loved and missed by your brothers and sisters, and we keep your practical jokes alive just as we always keep you in our hearts. There are pictures of some of us with finger"bunny ears" behind our heads and plenty of the sarcastic sense of humor that seems to have been bred into all of us at birth. Even on Facebook I will see some off the wall post that makes me laugh......and when I look to see who posted it.....sure enough it was someone in the family. We share such a deep bond among us........that many will never have the privilege of experiencing. But it makes me happy to see that we have passed it down to the children in the family when I see the bonds shared among the grandchildren. The Family love runs deep......and that is "Our Momma's Legacy".

Merry Christmas Big Brother.......I love you more that words can ever are always a part of each breath and beat of my heart.

Love always
your baby sister
