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 hadnā€™t spent so many of my formative years living in a box of fear that isolated me from so many wonderful people around me. Iā€™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.
