    My Beautiful Sister…….oh how my heart is broken. You meant the world
    to me, I have always regretted we were so far apart, you in Washington state,
    me in North Carolina. What wonderful times and treasured memories, the stories the laughter, the songs, the love of sisters….when we were together or visited on the phone together. I love you and will miss you forever, my heart and life will never be the same without you, Carolyn Queen Young.
