One of the closest friends I ever had the honor of having in my life.
Fought cancer with, and I kid you not, the most uplifting and positive manner.
Her consummate optimistic attitude rubbed off on me.
She continues to remind me to stay happy, exude positivity and smile.
I wonder if she ever knew how much she meant to me and how much she taught me.
I wonder if I told her those things enough?
I wonder if she knew what a complete life-changing influence her disease had on my own life's outlook?
Because, every now and then I get a little message from heaven, and I know it's her looking out for me.
Either that, or she's still playing practical jokes on me from afar.
