i was just on facebook. i saw a picture added to a group - a boy got a tattoo to memorialize a friend of mine that died in may. it wasn't a good friend, but we were in school together from elementary school through high school; she was in my graduating class. she died driving home from college. her passenger, also from my graduating class, was mostly fine (physically). anyway, the tattoo showed the girl's birth day, and her day of death. i now know that not only was she driving home from college, but it was the day b4 her birthday. i've always liked this girl, she was nice. i like to think that even though her life was short, she was happy. she had a cute bf, she had a lot of friends. i didn;t go to the funeral because i felt like i didn;t really belong there. there would be enough crying people, better friends of hers. i do miss her. she and i had a mutual respect for each other. i didn't want to post anything on facebook for the whole world to see, so i figured this would suffice. Jamie, i love you. i miss you. i hope you're in a better place now. i'm sorry to your family and to Gina. i cannot imagine what this must be like for all of them. jamie friended me on facebook a few weeks before this happened. i'm glad she did. i'm flattered to know she was thinking of me. i will always remember you, Jamie.
