Jenny and I in Honolulu, HI for her wedding in September 2006

Dear Jenny,

You crashed my first birthday party when I turned a year old by being born.
Since then, we became bonded not just by sharing a birthday but with something even bigger.
We became sisters.
Even though it is our mothers who are real sisters,
you became a real sister to me in my heart.
I couldn't ask for a better one.
You were there for me through thick and thin.

You were my maid of honor at my wedding.
What you didn't know was that it was an honor FOR ME to have you there at my side.
I couldn't think of anyone else sharing that special day with me other than you.

I cried with you through some of life's disappointments that were thrown your way.
And rejoiced at all the blessings that came around.
Just as you did with me.
Just as you've always done with me your whole life.

Thank you for being there for me.
Thank you for being the wonderful person that you are.

Happy birthday to you, my beautiful cousin.
My sister.
My best friend.
The world is a joyful place with you around.
I love you more than words can say.

- Sherryl
