Dear Kim,
Wow… been a while, hasn’t it?
I’m sorry I haven’t been writing to you. It’s not that I’ve run out of things to say, but… I guess I thought maybe I was depending on that too much. I still think of you often, but I keep these thoughts to myself for the most part. It seems better that way.
Today is your birthday. 23. It’s so weird to think about… the first birthday you celebrated when I met you was 13. I remember you writing me about your Hawaiian-themed party, and the awesome purse you got from your parents. It was a happy day.
Today, not so much.
I wonder, how might you have spent your 23rd birthday? Or your 21st? I don’t even know how you spent your last birthday… I missed that. I missed a lot of things, and now you’re gone.
I still remember the last time I heard your voice. You called me one day in July, 5 years ago. I remember, it was a hot day… kind of like today. We talked about nothing special. I didn’t know… if only I’d known it would be the last time….
I miss you so very, very much. It’s been almost 5 years now, and there is still not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. You were the best friend I ever had… the best friend anyone could ever ask for. You changed my life just by being in it, and I’ll never forget that.
I wish I understood, Kim… I wish I knew why these things had to happen. But I guess I never will. I have to accept that.
Wherever you are… I hope you’re celebrating today. I love you.

Your pen pal 4->,
Mandy
