I will always treasure our time spent together. You were so welcoming, a true one of a kind and my favourite type of person, hilarious and an individual. I made a promise to you that I would always be there for Nick and I intend to never break that. We will make you proud. You will live on with us forever. Until we meet again in heaven. Xoxo

I have too many memories to share here. She was a childhood friend, and we had a lot of adventures together. She was a one of a kind person, funny, crazy, and lovable. I just have no words right now to express how I feel.
