To my friend, Barbie: My heart is not filled with pain and sorrow but I will remember you in every tomorrow, I remember the Joy, the Laughter, the Smiles and know that you've only gone to rest for a "little while"...
I am drying my eyes and remembering you, Not as you are now, but as you used to be...A sweet neighbor; a friendly face on the school bus; trusted study partner in High School; and one of the "Really Cool Girls" whose Smile could brighten a room...
Please remember us all, and look down with a Smile, as we know you've only gone for "a little while"...
You will Live-on in our Hearts with the Love 0f your Friends...
