Candace,

You have continued to be on my mind for years and years after you left this place. I think about you often and all the great times we had as friends. You were definitely my best friend in middle school. We had some crazy moments together. I cant forget how much you meant to me then.

I remember high school and how busy I was. I let time slip away and one day realized that we had lost touch. I remember that it had been too long since we talked on the phone like we did almost every day the years before. I seen you early in the day one Friday at school and we caught up with each other real quick. The bell rang so we had to go but i didnt worry because I knew that I always seen you at the end of the day before you went to get on your bus. I thought about you all day that day thinking that we are older now and that maybe we could talk about taking our friendship to a more romantic level. I was nervous all day at what I would say to you. I tried writing a note but thought that was childish since we were grown now in high school and all haha. I finally gathered the courage to ask you for your number again and to say something to you about how i felt. After school that day I got held up with my 6th period class. I rushed to where I always see you but I had missed you. I remember being so mad after that thinking that we could have spent the whole weekend catching up. Little did I know that that brief exchange we had earlier in the day would change my life forever. Late that night I got a call from a mutual friend that destroyed me.

I regret a lot of things in life and one of them was not going to your funeral. I was in a spot that was uncomfortable to me and my counselor told me that going to your funeral would result in an unexcused absence and ruin my 4 year perfect attendance I was working on. I worked hard to get a full paid scholarship to UofL and thought my only goal in life was that. I hate that i missed it. 

Today i just wanted to get a few things off my chest and let you know how special you were to me and how much I miss you. I often find myself looking for you in crowds knowing I will never see you again. I hope one day we see each other again because I have a lot to talk to you about. Rest my friend.
