"We hug, but there are no tears. For every thing that's been said and done, she is my sister. Parents die, daughters grow up and marry out, but sisters are for life. She shares my memories of our childhood, our parents, our struggles, our sorrows, and, yes, even our moments of happiness. My sister is the one person who truly knows me, as I know her. I was so deeply saddened and shocked to hear of my sister's passing. She seemed so full of life to leave us. I extend my deepest sympathy to our family and all of her friend's families at this sad and difficult time. If I had to think of a special friend who was like no other; I'd think of someone near and dear who filled My days with joy; My sister, Donna Baker.
