    My best friend. My favorite sister. My little Georgie girl. Sister chic! I am going to miss you so very much. Every day. Thank you for always being there for me, no matter what. We shared so much. I have never known, nor probably will ever know anyone who had the infinite capacity of love you did in your huge heart. You can rest peacefully now, you won’t hurt anymore. I love you.
