Beth and family, I am heart broken right now. Beth represented a huge chapter in my life in High School. I am forever grateful that she spoke to me first as we stood in line on the first day of school. Who could resist that smile with those dimples? Rest easy precious Lady.

Beth and I were best friends through elementary school, we had these teddy bear Best Friends necklaces, a lot of our friends, had a BLAST at her Sleep overs for her birthday, mine was right behind hers. She was ALWAYS so Pretty and sweet! You are definitely leaving us too soon in our hearts, but Heaven knows you are going to make it a Brighter place! Rest easy Beth, til we meet again.

Beth came in to my life in elementary school. My first memory is that I really wanted to look like Beth. She was the prettiest girl I knew. When we got older and started having sleepovers, we would put on Janet Jackson tapes and make up dances. I really wanted to dance like Beth.
I remember going to her house after school. She made the best microwave nachos. She would paint each chip with refried beans and add the perfect amount of shredded cheese.
I remember in High school counting change and rushing to the parking lot so we could get to Pepe’s in time for the lunch special.
We would run the roads in her or Audrey’s little red car blaring music with the sunroof down. No one would sit in the back seat. We doubled up in the passenger seat. I’m sure our parents would appreciate that we managed to still wear our seat belt. We mastered getting one seatbelt to fit over two teenage girls.
We borrowed each other’s clothes all the time. We even knew where Beth hid her house key so that we could borrow her clothes if she was out of town.
I remember dancing with Beth in Mexico on our senior trip. We weren’t kids anymore, But I still wished I looked and danced like Beth.
Right now I feel like I am in a little red car with Audrey and Beth driving down highway 80. That was my happy place as a confused teenage girl. That memory is my happy place as a grateful adult. Grateful to have danced with Beth, ate her nachos and grateful to have been her friend.

Beth was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me she was my ride to school in high school in her red Celica, she was my girls night out, she was my ride around town with the sunroof open blasting whatever music we were into at the time (usually Janet Jackson or Christina Aguilera), she loved pulling pranks when if we were the only ones that found them funny, she was the thrower of my wedding and baby showers, she was my matron of honor, she was my therapist, but most importantly, she was my best friend. I don't know how this world will exist without her, but I know that she is pain free and if there has to be a silver lining, that's good enough for me. Beth, I will love and miss you forever. Until we meet again ❤
