My First ‘Best Friend’, Forever…

That was almost 5yrs ago, I met her when we moved to San Diego. My first impression to her was, “Wow, she is beautiful!”.  With her blonde curly hair and tanned skin, she was so bright just as her personality. She was not just nice to me, but she let me feel very comfortable to be her friend. She was my first ‘best friend’ in the United States.
I mean, all my friends here in U.S. are very nice n very friendly, n I love them all. But she was a little difference. She told me many things, like almost everything, n she asked me my opinions for each things. I could feel that she trusted me as her friend. N so I could be so comfortable trusting her as well.
She was always there for me, for all of us. When I needed help, she offered me even before I asked. She was that kinda person, she loved helping her friends.
She always brought laughter. We, this I would call our military family in this neighbor, did a lot of pot-luck style gathering, like every weekend. If she was not there, we felt like we were missing something. Then she showed up, the party started.
One day… that was December 31st, 2006. She came to our door n said “I’m gonna take you to get nose piercing today! I don’t care if you don’t want to, if you are scared, I’m getting you one today!” I was already over 30yrs old, so I was a lil surprised, I thought I was a lil too old for that(that’s what I thought back then). But anyway she got me one. I liked it. She said “See? I told you, it would look good on you!” You know it’s like we were teens, she got me nose piercing all of sudden, n got me excited n all…
When we had to leave San Diego, I promised her that we’ll come back. We always planned to move back to San Diego in the future. That plan kept getting stronger after we left. Because we felt that was our home. I was not just saying that, but that place was our home. So every time I talked to her on the phone, I missed her, but we’ll be back there, n everything will be back.
It was so sudden. I never thought this would end this way. I never thought I won’t be able to see her again. That breaks my heart. I won’t be able to see her again. There were still so many things I wanted to talk to her, do with her, so many places to go…
I am very sorry for her family. Especially we cannot be there for them right now… We may live far away from each other, but we’ll always be there for her family. They are family to us as well. Since we met them, they’ve always been, n they will always be.
I’ll never ever forget about her, n I’ll live with my memory of her. I’ll never forget what you taught me, what we laughed together, what we did together… N I’ll pass on to ppl I will meet, what a friend can be in our life.
R.I.P. Misty. You’ll live in my memory forever. Thank you for being such a great friend. Thank you for letting me being in your life. The time you n me spent together was irreplaceable…
