Tomo, we talked almost everyday and laughed a lot. We grew up so differently but we are both somehow sensitive and have same value. You’re very fun and a smart girl.
When I found something funny or guys I want to talk about, I texted you or called you up. After you’ve gone, I found something funny and I was just about to call you, then I realized you were not here. I really miss you.
I knew you were shy and uncomfortable to be loved, so I didn’t say it to you but you’re my best friend. I really wanted to be by your side and I wanted you to be, too. You were always helping me. Sorry I couldn’t help you.
The last text I sent you was saying’ you don’t want to feel awkward to hear this, though we live far and we cannot see each other easily, our hearts are always together. Call me anytime’. It’ll be never read. I hope you read it in the heaven. You’re not alone. We couldn’t see each other at this age, but wait for me till I go to you there. Then we talk and laugh again.
I really miss you Tomo. I won’t forget you and love you always. I think you’re happy in the heaven now.

You will be missed. You went away too, too soon. You were so very far from home, but you were kind and generous through and through.
Rest in peace, Tomoe. Rest in peace.
