    Ed, minute by minute I think of you, how can this be true? I can’t believe you’re really gone
    You’re everywhere but here with me and that hurts my heart tremendously
    You went away too soon and my life will never be the same
    We always had a special bond that I will miss that forever
    You always called me “Sista Love”, and I call you “Brotha Love” we always ended our conversations with going back and forth “Love you” no “Love you More”
    I will always remember all the wonderful loving memories we shared from childhood through the day you had to leave me
    The times we spent together; holidays, birthdays, games, pranks we played, and just all the fun we had will always make me smile and laugh
    All the conversations we had, you would also talk to me in your sleep, but now I fall asleep with you in my heart
    Everyday throughout my life I will think of you, forever in my heart and thoughts you will always be until we meet again
    Forever heartbroken,
    Love You More, Your Sista Love
