    Heather you are always going to be my Sister. I will always treasure the memories of our childhood. You were like the greatest playmate, you let me dress you up any way I wanted to, no matter how much hair spray I used. I really didn't mean to hit you in the head with that bat or push you down the stairs :-\ I promise it was an accident. I'm really going to miss you calling me for advice. I'm really Proud of all the progress you made. I promise I'll do my very best to look after your Momma and Dad. I Love You, Always Baby Cousin!!
