My sister, Mary Gutierrez, right, is really one of a kind. She will make herself available for whatever the need might be. She has a caring heart not only for family but for everyone. She is always ready to lend a hand or a listening ear. She is a good sport, too, like in this picture, when my brother surprised her with a birthday serenade and they sang happy birthday "Panchita." I love my one-of-a-kind sister.

When we asked for photos of you and your sister or sisters, you really delivered.

Not only did you submit photos, but you also submitted beautiful stories that helped capture the true meaning of what it means to be a sister.

You also reminded us that you don't have to be a sister, biologically, to be a sister.

Sisterhood runs deep. You reminded us how important it is to stay close to our biological sisters and our friends, who are like sisters.

It's beautiful to read some of the stories you all submitted about how deep your relationship runs.

For our next contest, we want to learn about your brothers. The winner will receive a free 11-by-14-inch print of the winning photo from Korczynski's Photo Lab & Studio, 105 Cozzi Circle.

Upload your pictures to Your Photos at VictoriaAdvocate.com. Be sure to include your name, contact email address and a little information about your brother.

The deadline is 5 p.m. Jan. 19. The winning photo will publish in the Jan. 28 "Your Life" section of the Victoria Advocate.
