We always had a great time no matter where we were or what we were doing. Big joke between us was saying we were BFF'S, but we were more than that, we were family. I have missed our phone calls and our dinner dates for a long time but i struggled so bad with seeing you so sick and weak when i was so used to you being so strong. No one laughted as hard as we did and i miss that so much. I still have the letter you wrote to me a few years ago and ill keep it as long as im here. We will see each other again someday BFF, please rest and get ready for more laughs when i get there. Love you
