  32. My beautiful big Sister Vera. I miss you so much already. You spoilt me from the day I was born and never stopped spoiling me and loving me. All the happy memories – school holidays going to watch footy and fire brigade, sitting up late doing jigsaw puzzles. Then as time went on holidays with the kids, weekends spent at the van. If only I could give you one more hug and thank you for all you have done for me and tell you how much I love you.
    Rest peacefully beautiful lady
