I MISS MY BIG SISTER, VIRGINIA SMITH TAYLOR (“JENNY”), SO MUCH. I WAS OBEDIENT UNTIL THE END:

Dear Jenny,

From:  JoAnne Smith Hooks Blog Site

When you and I were texting each other with laughter in each text at 2:06am Thursday morning, April, 22, 2021.  You told me you were going to bed because of the late hour and we would talk tomorrow.  Jen, I am still waiting on tomorrow.  We said, I love you good night not good-bye. 

Jen, when you sent my birthday gift Saturday, April 17, 2021 and you told me not to open the box until May 5th I thought you were punishing me…lol..  I was devastated.  As I sat starring at that box, I called you to ask could I please open it?  Jen, you knew it would be difficult for me pass by that box every day for 3 weeks not knowing what was inside.  You broke and said, “Yes, I could open it.”  I discovered there was a beautiful RED SUIT inside.  I pursued by begging you to allow me to wear it to church on Sunday because I had to make a video?  You said, “Yes.” 

On Thursday morning at the 2:06am, which was our last text you went in on Facebook to see me in the RED SUIT and told me it was a nice fit. 

Jen, since you did not see me with the RED SUIT on in person.  This is what I have decided to do.  On Saturday, May 1, 2021 if it is the Will of the Lord, I will say my farewell to you by wearing that RED SUIT to celebrate you in Arkansas.  After that day Jen, I will not need to wait on the tomorrow because I feel that the Holy Ghost will give me closure.  I pray you are reading my message, right now.  I just want to say, I love you and I miss you so much, Big Sister!

Jo
