We were friends off and on for years. I knew her to be a kind, sensitive, and generous person. The newpapers said she was a mean and violent drug addict. That's not who she really was.
My last words to her were unkind. I think she is now is a place where she can forgive me. Someday I will go there too.
I know that she must be genuinely happy for the first time in a long time. She's now in a place where there is no more lies, deceit, or drugs. I just wish she could have experienced some of that happiness here with us and then maybe she would have seen that she had many more people that cared about her than she originally thought.
