    I will always love you, John. You were the best big brother a sister could have. I hear other family members talk about your hugs. I loved them. You always got up out of your chair to hug me even when it was hard to get up. I will miss your "I love you." I know you are in a better place and can't wait to see you again someday. Take care of the rest of the family while you are in heaven.
