Growing up in elementary school with Hunter was amazing. We’d walk around the school at recess and lunch, play in the upper field or go on the playground. We had gotten really close in grade 3 or 4, and I have so many amazing memories of her. Throughout the elder grades I had lost my connection with her, but she was still my good friend. I will never forget facetiming her on school nights and playing Growtopia with her. Scamming eachother and other people and doing stupid things. She will forever be missed❤️

Me and hunter had been best friends for years until about a year ago we drifted apart but we had done everything together she followed me everywhere even to the bathroom Hunter was my best friend she was apart of my family there wasn’t a day we weren’t together or a weekend we didn’t have a sleepover I can say I probably spent more time at her house then I did mine I have so many memories with her from going to the states or just walking randomly around to random places for hours she loved to go out and leave the house she felt more free
Hunter was apart of my family and I was apart of hers we didn’t go anyway without each other my parents called her their second daughter and a lot of people actually thought we were sisters
Hunter got her dog Layla from my family’s husky rescue and she loved the dogs way more then I did she used to dance around with them and give them weird names and make up songs for them
She also used to drink water out of bowls with ice or she would put a bowl of her head and make weird faces
I used to always dye her hair whenever she wanted a new colour i did it for her she taught me how and I can’t even remember how many times I had done it for her
Hunter was my best friend my family my sister over the past year I’ve thought about her everyday I wanted to reach out talk to her I wanted to be best friend like we used to and I really wish I had but she will always have a place in my heart I love you Hunter Blair

growing up with hunter was such a great experience. i am so glad i got to spend so many years with her. she was always such a kind girl to be around. she always put everyone before her and she was so sweet. i have so many great memories with her from day care and school but the one that stands out to me the most is when we were eating our snacks during recess at school and this bee (at the time we thought it was huge) started chasing us and we just started sprinting and screaming and we left all our food on the grass. i will never forget all the fun times we had together. her smile always brightened the room and seeing her cry when she laughed made my day. hunter was my first friend and she will always be in my heart💖

hunter n i are day ones. there was never a time where it wasn't us. i stayed the night at her place more than i did at mine. i knew her so well and she knew me more than anyone else. we'd go out and come back late. we'd go to tims for no reason. she'd always want to go so far. we played what are the odds so much. we ended up having to do a pottery lesson, go to chillawack, seattle, surrey. we'd do so many stupid things together. i even dyed her hair black because of what are the odds. we've been friends for like what, four years? i cant keep track. but still, hunter is my sister. she always will be. in elementary school she'd come with different hair every week.
people ask what's my favourite memory of her, i don't have one. my story with her is all one memory. every single day i will remember with her. hunter is my bestfriend, not only that she is my sister. my family. whenever something would happen i'd go to her. if something happened w her, she'd come to me. when we wanted to talk about our problems we'd meet up at tims or cap hill. everyone i go it reminds me of her. she was the most adventurous girl i've met. i swear there is no place she hasn't been to with me (except downtown, she never wanted to go there). we'd ride the curry bus too. it was so funny. she saw this hot guy on there too and she made a god damn tik tok about him. it was so funny. yk, hunter was also the most funniest person i knew. hands down. no matter what she'd make everyone smile. no matter what, there was always a laugh with her.
we have had so many weird moments. she made me change her clothes to put on her back warmer thing, she'd make me wait in the washroom while she showered or bathed. every significant moment in my life will always have hunter in it. the hands down funniest memory i have of her was when she banned me from using her washroom cause i clog the toliet too much.
anyway, hunter maria susan blair, you will always have a place in my heart. i love you sis.

i remember the first day i met hunter, i didn’t know hunter well but we talk a few times before that. she was so sweet and caring. even though i only knew her for a few months we made lots of memories that i will never forget. my favourite memory out of all of them is when hunter, and a few other people came over and we hung out and went out to get gelato and had a great time. hunter will never be forgotten and stay in our hearts forever.

I remember the first day I met Hunter. She sat down beside me in class and we started talking. Instantly I felt like we were friends. She told me about her pets and we talked about music. She hated public speaking so when the teacher was picking on people we both would giggle and pray he doesn’t pick her. Every time I saw Hunter she made me laugh. Hunter was so down to earth and such a good friend. I wish I could have got to know her better. She will be missed forever <3

i remember the first time i met hunter. her and charlotte had been talking on social media a lot and so we all decided to meet up. at playland charlotte and i met up with amelia and hunter. we all had an amazing time. after that we hung out multiple times. at the mall, at charlottes or she would sometimes even come watch my soccer practices. every time filled me with joy and i’m so so lucky that i got a chance to meet and become friends with such an amazing girl. she instantly made a huge impact on my life. she was so brave, caring, beautiful and thoughtful. she could light up every room she walked into. she was always there for me no matter what. i could tell her anything and she would give the best advice. although we weren’t very close, i will miss her so much. thinking about u hunter, love u always❤️

Anyone who knew Hunter can agree with me when I say she was really one of a kind. Getting to spend all of elementary school with hunter was truly a blast. Hunter and I shared many memories together that I will cherish forever there has not been a day that has passed where she hasn’t made me laugh when we were together she always made me smile and laugh. She lit up every room she walked into and she will forever be missed.
