Many times now I have sat down to write this post only to find myself lost for words, unable to convey to you everything that this girl was and is to me. Unable to capture our childhood antics and endless days of laughter.
Today I am giving it another shot.
When I was born she lived next door. I suspect we became friends before I could walk or talk. I suspect she was making me laugh and holding my hand before I could say her name. She has continued to make me laugh and hold my hand for all of my life, not once letting me down or leaving my side.
