This is so hard for me to write. I don’t even know where to begin. So I guess I’ll start from the moment we met, when they walked you into my grade 6 classroom and the teacher introduced you. And it’s like from that moment we knew we were going to be attached at the hip. We spent so many years of our life like 2 peas in a pod. You were truly the closest person to me through such hard times. I don’t think there was one summer that went by that we didn’t spend almost every day together. I wish we could have been close as adults. I wish I could have done more to help you. I wish we could go back to simpler times. I was always hoping there would be a day when you’d come back to Canada and we could spend all the time in the world together like the good ol’ days. I miss all of the late night talks we used to have. I miss the music sessions and jam out to all genres under the sun. I miss our long walks around the neighborhood and going to the Macs to get snacks and energy drinks. I miss our super fun camping trips with your mom. I’m just going to miss you so much. Today is the day they will lay you to rest, and I wish I could be right there with you. I’m praying lots for your son and your mom and your grandma and your whole family. You touched so many lives and had the biggest presence. Everyone knew you as the loving girl who cared deeply about every person you met. This loss is so devastating. I love you so much Heaven, may you finally get the rest you deserve and may God meet you at the gates of paradise.

I can't believe the news I woke up to. It feels like only yesterday we were driving around Edmonton until 5 in the morning, listening to music and talking about conspiracy theories and our life goals. Your laugh was so contagious, and you always supported me with whatever ridiculous art I was coming up with. I'll miss you forever, until we meet again, Heaven.

I am extremely saddened to hear about your passing, had I taken the chance just to say hello by msg or call, when you came into my mind so often. These things I can never change. I am honoured to have known you from such a young age and watched you bloom into a young lady only to have you leave Edmonton, and follow your heart. You are beautiful, and perhaps you were needed elsewhere. This moment makes me realize how important it is to let the people that matter know how dear they are to us. How fragile and precious the time we have here on earth. May God reserved a beautiful place for you in Heaven. Goodbye my friend.

Heaven, I am so glad that we had the opportunity to meet in this life and become good friends. You and I were like sisters. I watched you grow from the age of 17. I’m glad for the many beautiful life experiences you had. I know you’ll be shining your ray of light upon every person whose life you touched, from the next life. I will miss you terribly and think of you often. I promise to live a full life in your honor. Thank you so much for your friendship, baring your beautiful soul, and experiencing all of the amazing times we had together. I will cherish you always.
