Raven and I became good friends several years ago. Back in the day we was the best morning coffee buddies. Have several good memory of our time we spent together. Its funny how life changes and you drift apart from one another than for some reason it seems like you are brought back together for a reason. That was Raven and me we could always pick up were we left off. And I am happy that it happen and I was able to spend some time with her again.
Prayers for the family in these time of sorrow, Its never easy saying goodbye and yes she will be missed. Just remember that now she can be in peace with no pain and suffering.
Rest in Peace My Friend.
