You were an unbelievable friend, an infectious personality and just a genuine person to be around. I feel so lucky and proud that I got to call you my friend for so many years. I know you're probably somewhere jamming away to Ed and getting your nails done in some crazy-ass color thinking we are crying waaaay too much! I know i'll see you again, but until then, i'll keep hold of all the laughs and adventures. Love always, Lhani.
