I don't even know where to begin, to be honest. There is so much to reflect on. To walking our dogs together when we were little. To Show Choir, to Music Trips, to a ton of laughs, and to late night texts or calls. You've told me some pretty crazy things that have made me laugh and shake my head. To just always being there and for you being so thankful that I always had an ear for you to chew. No matter then time or the day, I would drop what I was doing just to make sure you were ok, and safe. I am thankful you came home for a week two summers ago and we got to chill and you got to meet my kids. I am forever thankful that we were able to reconnect and not lose touch. I am forever thankful that I was able to help you out and be there for you when you needed it. I will never forget you. I love you Char. Rest Easy.
