There are no words. Grateful for Kim reaching out to me from Australia this morning with the news of her passing. The years dissolve over a cup of coffee with tear filled eyes as I reminisce of our time together. MTV was the new must have and she had it and we danced & dressed to our latest favorite. We were close, laughed and cried over boys we mistook for men... we were young with so much in front of us. This hurts as I'm certain we were to meet here again. She spoke of her daughter and sent videos of her playing guitar and singing... she wished for me to meet her. I wholeheartedly expected to meet her one day soon, perhaps when they were back in Florida as my sister and her family recently moved there...
I'm so very sorry for her family... as I am for all of us who hoped to see her again in this life. You leave us knowing it is as fleeting as it is beautiful... these days are not to be squandered... until we meet again I will do my best to live in the moment.
I'm certain we shall see each other in the next life... God is good.
