It also can be devastating to read about the death of a friend. Something that I’ve never look forward to whenever I pay a visit into Facebook each day.
I didn’t want to impose sadness on my blog post today, but I just can’t seem to think about anything else but the loss of a good friend.
She was way too young. It’s heart-wrenching.
I urge you to hug your loved ones, tell them how much you love them every single day. We’ll never know what tomorrow brings.
Wherever you are, know that we miss you way beyond words. Life is too short and you’ve taught us never to take it for granted. Live. Every. Moment. As if it’s your last.
Rest in peace.
