    To the best big sister I ever had. You were always easy to talk to when I had questions growing up. You were very hard working and full of spirit and energy. I remember that there were plenty of times I tried to give you a ride when I saw you walking through town and you would say no need I am almost there. You were on your way to work. I remember the times we sang together in the church choir and meals with the family be it at grandma Frye’s house or aunt Teresa’s ( momma’s) house. I will truly miss you a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends as well.
