You were a wonderful friend when we were little growing up as neighbors. We practiced marching with your big sister. In high school we took twirling lessons together. We marched and did our twirling routines in parades and at all the home football games. You were so good and patient with all of us as we practiced with you.
I lost touch through the years but always thought of you. You were such a great person!
