    Gina, I know you fought the good fight, and you won. Your now walking with our Lord. Thank you Gina for allowing me to share your children. They are good kids. I could not of asked for a better “wife in law”. You will be proud as your children grow and live a good life, You installed the love of God, believing and faith by sending to church at an early age, they depend on that learning now. You have left a legacy in both of them and they will fine. Thank you again Gina for you.

    We met on a Thursday…the three of us loved each other from the start.
    When our parents told us they were getting married, we were so happy. We laughed till we cried and promised each other that we’de always be together.
    Then the day came, Dad got custody of us (Brenda and me). God answered our prayers, we’de be together everyday and forever.
    I remember the first time we were called “step” sisters.. Oh how we disliked that word. The three of us made a promise that night, we put our hands on top of each others and yelled “Sisters Forever”.
    We were so happy, oh we had so much fun, we got in some trouble too, but we didn’t care, we were together.
    The day Brenda died, oh how we cried.
    We made a promise to Brenda that in our memories, we would keep her alive. Then we yelled up to the sky “Sisters Forever”.
    The years went by and we grew apart, like siblings do. In our hearts we were together every second of everyday. We could look at each other and carry on a conversation without saying a word, we were sisters.
    The morning you died, oh how I cried.
    I went outside, openened my arms up to the sky. I made a promise to you, Gina, that in my memories, I would keep you alive.
    Just then, in my mind, I saw you and Brenda together. I smiled through my tears, and yelled to the sky “Sisters Forever”.
    I love you Gina. Until we meet again.
    Your “Sister Forever”. Susie…
