There are many memories that I have of my friends that have passed away. There's no way that I could possibly tell you all of my memories of them.
My best friend Keeley of three years died June 291997. We played softball together and her mom was our Girl Scout leader. So it's safe to say that we were always together. Some of my memories of her would be when I would go to her house and her room would always be dirty. Another would be when we went walking through the woods by her house. She should me her favorite place to go when she wanted to be alone. It was a creek, but not just any creek it was beautiful. It had a huge drop off and water ran off of it like a miniature Niagara Falls. It was so peaceful.
My friend Abed died in July of 2000 in a car accident on I-35.
My favorite memory of him would be his energy hugs. Everyday during 8th and 9th grade he would give me a big bear hug and pick me up off the ground. He would say, "Now you have all of the energy that you need for the rest of the day." We were good friends for three years.
Brandon who was my friend for 2 years died in September 8, 2000. The memory I have of him is when we would be driving in his car. We would be listening to music and he would put his leg up and dance to the music. Another would be when he would try to start his car it wouldn't start he would have to get a jumpstart.
Josh my friend of 2 years he died April 17, 2001 in a single car wreck. He was a great friend and he was always there for me when I needed him. I looked up to him as a brother. There are so many memories I have of him. My memories of Josh are so precious to me. When I would be grounded or be at home for the night I could count on him to be home to talk to me. The last time I saw him was at the Buy For Less by my house and that is where I got my last hug that I will never forget.
In the past four years I have experienced a lot of losses. I feel that it makes me a stronger person in life. I have learned a lot from all of them, and they can count on me to never forget them. They will live on through my heart.
