Jenay my oldest, and strongest sister she’s been through so much this hurts me more then anything she was so young jenay was only 23 years old. yes she did go through depression and yes it was hard for her but every time she would stick it out and be happy.i do look back on how we had good times on how we would laugh hard until our stomachs hurt I didn’t think this is how it would be without a older sister. I do still look at our videos and laugh but this does hurt me every day more and more.i never thought this would happen I was so close to her our bond was so unbreakable she would usually come to me whenever she needed to laugh and I would make that happen. But I do think about how she won’t be yelling for me at my graduation and won’t see me get married.i really wish she could of stuck this out for one more time. it’s crazy on how I wont hear jenay saying can you cook for me or mommy can u make me chicken and bring it to me it’s only 8 minutes away (her favorite words). I wish she didn’t go but god said it was time for her to go so she won’t struggle no more 23 is way too young. I love you jenay.
