I am truly heartbroken over my sister's untimely passing. She should've had many more years on this earth. She was an amazing person who had the ability to always make you laugh, even without trying. She was my best friend growing up, and I will always cherish all the memories I have of her. I'm going to miss her soo much, but I take comfort in knowing that she's up there with my Dad now looking down on all of us..I love you Laura, rest in peace XOXO
