Happy Birthday Holly...

so i went on to holly's website today to wish her a happy 19th birthday and this picture was on the page, it had just been loaded by mary, holly's mother... i think my post to her accurately sums up my feelings as we reflect on a wonderful girl today...



this is what i wrote:

words cannot express the feelings i had when the page loaded and mine and holly's faces popped up on the screen... first, it brought tears to my eyes, as i was going on the site to wish her happy birthday... second, it made me so incredibly honored to have called her one of my friends, honored that i was invited to her birthday party last year, and saddened that we cannot be celebrating as we did just one year ago. I'm in thought as to the fact that last year at this time we were celebrating life, celebrating no cancer, celebrating HAIR... but wondering why it didnt come back red! wow, i loved... no wait... LOVE that girl... i'll never stop, i just love her in a different way now, i love the memories, the talks, the texts... it's sad that i cant text her and wish her happy birthday, but i know she's having one crazy party thrown for her up there! She wouldnt have it any other way... Hope you guys surround yourselves with wonderful memories of such a beautiful and amazing girl today... though it will be sad, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers as always, but especially today... miss you hollyboo...
