I lost one of my oldest friends to brain cancer a day prior to Thanksgiving. She was an extraordinary human being who never left my heart from the moment I met her. I only wish I had made more memories with her. I wish I hadn’t spent so many of my formative years living in a box of fear that isolated me from so many wonderful people around me. I’ve never been one to get too personal on here but this may prove to be the exception. She deserves that I write a thing, but this is the best I can do right now.
