Today my little sister turns 19! (Read the letter I wrote to her on her 17th birthday.)
I am so proud of the young woman you have become, Laura. You are compassionate and considerate. You are disciplined and determined — both in the classroom and on the track. You are sometimes silly and always sincere. You will be such a great auntie in September. And some day you will be a wonderful nurse!
I love you, sis.
