S: "SISTERS FOREVER"
FC: Mary and Tess Lovingly Made by Maryann | "Sisters Forever"
1: Maybe it's the experience of growing up with a sister.... of bickering and teasing when we should have kissed each other. Maybe one has to get older to know what life's been... to have her at your side through thick and thin... And maybe we were just grateful to the sun and stars above us... as heaven only knows how much we truly love each other.

25: "A SISTER IS SPECIAL" A sister is one of the nicest things that can happen to anyone. She is someone to laugh with and share with, to work with and join in the fun with. She is someone who helps in the rough times, and knows when you need a warm smile. She is someone who will quietly listen, when you just want to talk for a while. A sister is dear to you always, for she is someone who is always a part of all the favorite memories that you keep very close to your heart. -
