My Dear Sweet Friend ~
We had our good times, we had our bad times, we had our happy times, we had our sad times. What we had throughout the years many only dream of having with a friend. I will always admire you, cherish you, love you and remember you. My heart is happy knowing that you are with those you love who went ahead, that you are dancing and singing once again, and that I will see you again some day.
Love you, Theresa!!
