As far back as I can remember Shanda and I were always close. I can't really even believe she's gone. I know my life was better because of her being a part of it friends like her are like shooting stars in this life they pass through your life too quickly. I will think of you when I need a smile and I will never forget your friendship. Rest in peace I love you.
