I'm really going to miss you my friend; our conversations, laughs, sitting outside listening to music, girls night,  & Good Vibes. I thank God for the time he allowed me to have with you. Meeting you at a time when I lost my best friend was such a blessing. You are truly sunshine on a cloudy day. I tried to make sure you knew that I love you & appreciate you being a friend. Rest in paradise lady 💟
