Monique was and will always be a very special part of my life. Over the years I have shared so much her and she showed me how valuable friendship really is. When we met, I was 10 years old. We became friends instantly. If I knew that what a wonderful friend she would be and how much happiness she would bring in my life, I would have thanked her 8 years ago. Right now I now that all my memories are really painful, but eventually I will be thankful I have them to hold on to. Sometimes I feel so cheated, like someone's played a horrible trick on me. But then I think at least I was lucky enough to have her as a best friend. Some people say everyone comes here to teach us something. Monique taught me how important family and friends are. She was the most generous and caring person I knew. She always knew just what you needed to cheer you up. She had a special gift that I can't explain but now we all must carry on a little of Monique's generosity and compassion in us so that her memory will always live on.
Monique, I am thankful for everyday I spent with you. Every memory, every walk, every talk, every laugh, every cry - every moment we shared. I can not touch you, I can not hug you but I can close my eyes and you are there and I know you will always be there. In my heart you will live forever. You are my best friend and I will love you always. Thank you for all you have been to me.
