    I honestly don’t know where to start. I am so very grateful to of gotten to know you over these last 5 years. I always said if we were the same age at several different moments in our lives we would of been best friends. But truth is age didn’t matter, u were one of my best friends. I will greatly miss our conversations and hearing you laugh at my moments of less then ladylike behavior. I hope you are dancing the time away up there, please my dear friend enjoy the afterlife. Just know those who got to know you are better for it…. trust me because I know I am…. with so much love and admiration
    Your girl
