Kelsi is the best friend I've ever had. I've thought about her everyday since she's died and I miss her so much. I'm glad she's in a better place now. I still love you and I'm sorry for everything.

I can't believe it's been 10 months already..almost a whole year without my best friend by my side...some days I still tell myself it can't be true..I miss you so much, Kels! You were my world and there is no one else that can make me as happy as you made me. There is no one else in the whole world I'd rather take out on our little dinner-and-a-movie "dates" haha I miss those. You accepted me for who I am and stood by me through everything, and I am so grateful for you. I love you so much, Kelsi! I'll see you again someday, so you better save a spot for me up there!<3
