I love you more than you'll ever know. You were the big sister I always wanted and finally got upon meeting you. I've always prayed for your happiness and now I will go on praying for the peace you always deserved. I know you are watching over Trevor and I now. He knows that you're living with the stars now. That when he looks up at night and sees the star shining brightest in the sky, that's his Titi Fia smiling down at him. No one has ever left such an impact on my life the way you did and I will forever cherish our friendship and the time we shared together. I'll miss you more with each day that passes. Love, Joey

This is because there is a stop sign not far ahead of the one that was blown. Probably thinking that its for pomona rd And people focus on stopping at that one without seeing pomona rd stop sign . when i first started driving years ago .i almost did that. Theres always accidents there.. Its time to fix the problem at that intersection .
