    Wow sis, I have picked up the phone to call you and realized I can’t talk to you on the phone anymore. I miss you so much and feel so alone. The thought of not hearing from you anymore is so painful. May God accept you in the kingdom of heaven with open arms my dear sister. I will see you later. Love your baby sister Melanie Cheatham Witt. ❤️❤️❤️
