We first met in homeroom, 6th grade @ Northwood middle school. I'll never forget that moment when we locked eyes for the first time, a spark was lit at first sight. You were wearing your pink shirt, and sat across from me at the same table. After that, the rest was history. We did everything together as kids. Had lake weekends, show choir trips, group sleep overs, everything. Iv'e shared some of my most personal moments in this life with you and for that reason, made you a big part of my life. It hurt me so much hearing the news. I pray for your family, Amy, Bruce, Samantha, Brodie, and Marissa. I'll always remember you, my first love. I'm so thankful it was you. Till next time, Judith.

Bruce, I wish I could say something, anything, to comfort you. I know she was, is, and always will be the love & light of your life. I will never forget the way your face lit up when you talked about her, or hers when she spoke of you. She is forever your guardian angel now. The most beautiful angel I’ve ever seen. Prayers and love always, D.
