Our journey started in 2010 but will remain with me forever. Throughout our relationship, one thing has stayed the same; we were the family we chose for each other, you were my sister and I am yours. Our last year and a half together made it all the more real, we didn’t just share a house but we made it our home. Our blended and albeit unusual family made all of our struggles this last year seem less because we had each other. I am in awe of the grace and beauty you possess, in the outlook you had for those you love and those you didn’t even know. Being a part of your life was a privilege. Calling you my sister, was a privilege. Living with you and growing with you was a privilege. I am forever grateful for the amazing years we were able to have and the memories that came from them. Anyone who has met you can all agree, we have learned how to love differently, more compassionately, more deeply and without judgement, because of you. I love you with all my heart.May you always do for others And let others do for you May you build a ladder to the stars And climb on every rung May you stay forever young.
