Dearest Reanna,
You have been a part of my family's life since Marissa and I were kids, and I will never forget all of the fun we had in childhood, playing mermaids in your family’s pool, putting on magic shows, watching our favorite movies over and over again, and spending hot summers with our families, all of the girls together, swimming all day in the pool at the Thunderbird. You stayed close to my sister over the years, and I appreciate what a true and genuine friend you always were to her. I know you helped her and supported her in ways that I never could. Whenever Marissa would come down from up north to visit, you were always the first person around to see her and spend time with her. I’m thankful that I got to spend some of that time with you as well, and I’ll always remember you especially for your playful energy and loving spirit that found the humor and joy in even the smallest and seemingly meaningless things.
One of the last times I saw you, I told you about the time a server surprised me by giving me one of those giant, gag pens to sign my check with, and you immediately saw the humor in it and decided to get one for yourself to bring into Crabby’s for your customers. We were smiling and cracking up, imagining the potential look on everyone’s faces when they would first notice that giant pen. You went out that very day and bought a giant pen, and then texted me later with such excitement that you had found one! This is how I will remember you, Reanna, seeing the joy and humor in the little things and having the desire and drive to pass that on to others. So right now, wherever you are, I know you are still existing in that joy and using your special gift to pass it on to the world around you. Losing you is so sad, but remembering your unique and beautiful interactions with others is a gift that I and all of your loved ones will treasure forever. I hope to see you, my sister Reanna, one day on the other side.
Love and Peace Always,
Tess

To my soul sistah, world changer, my rock, the infamous re baby, tree, star love, re re, bersterst... there are so many more nicknames from 15 years of friendship... There is simply not enough space here for me to list them all or write what our friendship has meant to me after all this time.

Together we experienced and supported one another through successes, challenges, love, heart break, life altering decisions, moves, etc etc. Through thick and thin we leaned on each other.

You once wrote, “the word inspire is one of my all time favorite words...’spire,’ Latin word, means spirit. And so inspiration is the relationship between two souls. Right? What you’re breathing in and breathing out. Sort of like the trees. What the trees breathe out, we breathe in... how sacred is that? How profound is that?! Let’s pay attention to that. That’s the amazing stuff. Those are the gifts.”

Well Reanna,
YOU were an inspiration.
YOU were a gift.
And I will ALWAYS feel connected to you when I sit and appreciate the trees and the world around me.
I love you eternally. 💜
