Little Sister's Note To Sibling Leaving For College Will Make Your Heart Burst (PHOTO) (UPDATE)

Little sisters tend to get a bad rap for being annoying, but just when you think you're about to rip your hair out, they do something unexpectedly sweet.

Case in point: the below note from college student Jordan Hershberger's adorable little sis.

Hershberger provided some background in an e-mail to the Huffington Post:

I was at my mom's house that night (my parents are divorced) and my stepmom sent it attached in a text message. Makena and I have been really close and it was taking quite the toll on her that I was leaving. There were many nights where she'd have break downs at home just because I was leaving. She's such an amazing little sister, and I'm definitely missing her (and the rest of my family) now that I'm off at college.

BRB there's a large stick in our eye...
