I am saddened to just now find this out a year later. We were best friends in school. I would ride my bike to her house nearly every day to read anime and to just hang out. She would always brighten your day when you would have a bad day and always had a smile on her face. We would talk almost daily and played video games everyday. We lost connection about 7 years ago. She will never be forgotten. May she rest in peace.
