I was the talkative, adventurous one; you were the quiet, steady and reliable one. I always looked up to you and am thankful to have had you for 88 years. My loss is bittersweet--bitter because of my loss of you; sweet because of the happy memories we made together through the years. And thankful for the wonderful assurance that since each of us asked Jesus into our hearts, we WILL see each other again in Heaven. Until then, rest in peace.
