Clicked from day way and to me your always my true spirit sister. I miss you fiercly chicks with every part of my being I will live in your memory. Your laugh still rings in my ear as a beautiful memory of a sweet vibernt Melody lost to soon. My favorite memory is when you surprised me when I was Ill and came over with a bottle of whiskey and told me the secret to life is when you just say fuck it. I laughed so hard tears fell from my eyes. We hugged and cried. I told you then I never wanted to let go of my best friend. Rest easy my epic strong G homegirl. Most gangster down white girl I ever met. Peace and Love
