Dear baby sister,
That sounds odd, but thinking about you brings memories of our childhood, when you were a toddler. You were so cute! Always smiling. I can see you running across the floor giggling with your hair parted on the side and a tiny little pony tail on top.
You were always so smart, and I was as proud of you as mom and dad were.
Thank you for all the years together before you got sick. It was great being neighbors when I came back from Austin… you helped Luke get off the bus. You were always doing things for others, rarely did I hear you say no to a favor. A great supportive sister /babysitter.
You were also such a good companion to mom after dad passed away. I want to thank you for that also. I know how hurt you were when he passed so suddenly. We were all in shock, but I always felt it was almost too much for you to bare.
I wish you a peaceful and pain free life in Heaven… mom and dad will be so glad you are with them again. I love you. I’m sorry I hadn’t seen you in so long. I will be here for your boys- men if they should need me and I hope to get to know your grandchildren and spend time with them.
I love you very much… you will always be in my mind.
Christopher Abbott says
Dear aunt Elizabeth,
I just wanted to say I love you! Thanks for all the great times when I was growing up. You taught me about music, doing donuts, and so much more. I will miss you, but I am so relieved to know you can finally rest peacefully and free of pain.

To my Leetle SeeSir, BihBah!
I miss you so much. I would have wrote to you sooner but just found this page prior to starting this note. I been talking to you constantly, so great full that you are no longer hurting and knowing that fact is what gets me through. Remember ,when I came to pick you up last Christmas and brought you to my house, remember we shared Peppermint Sticks and shared some good time. You had your Peppermint Sweater on and we snapped a picture of us. I know Mom, Dad and you will be sharing this Christmas with lots of loved ones that have gone this past year. I will be there when God is done with me as well. As you have said before, see you in 15 minutes. Then Mom will be able to once again tell us to stop running around the house, you’re going to fall or get hurt. I miss all y’all.
This is you’re Big SeeSir , memories, love and peace remain.💕
