  15. Well older sister to say I am going to miss you would be an understatement. Oddly what I will miss most is coming to your house and you tellimg to me go on up – take what I wanted. What you were telling me to do was almost a tradition started from the time I was small. I would go into your perfume and spray it all over me. You would just roll your eyes. It continued even when I became an adult. You telling me go on up and spray all your perfume and take what I wanted. Just one of those things we seemed to enjoy and bring happiness to us. I miss you lots. Your loving sister, Lean.
