Oh, my precious sweet twin sister, you will always be my best friend, my other half and the one person that I have known for 9 months before our Mother me us! I thank you for sharing you life with me and I look forward to seeing you again one day! I will miss our phone calls, our laughs and our finishing each other’s sentences. I have never loved anyone more than I love you. RIP and May God hold you in his arms and comfort you! Your sister Faye. ♥️♥️

You have always had a special place in my heart, Aunt Raye. I'll always remember our lovely chats, you helping me when my children were babies, and the sweet way you called my name. I miss you already and will until I see you in Heaven! I'll love you always! Cynthia
