    She was my beloved redheaded echo, but so much more because she had learned to find peace in God’s presence in her life & skills I never possessed that I so admired such as patience, selflessness, generosity, gentleness, extreme kindness & more. She’s left her indelible mark in my heart that I’ll never lose to bandage the grief I have by losing my dear sister. I rejoice in her new body, reunion with Daddy & Gene, & especially her inherited glory. Hallelujah for you Allyson. See you again later.
    Your adoring big sis, Kelly
