RIP, Kandys.

"What do you say in a moment like this when you can't find the words to tell it like it is? Just close your eyes and let your heart lead the way."
- Reba McEntire, What Do You Say lyrics

Today's scheduled blog will be postponed. It will have to wait until tomorrow. I found out about the death of a dear friend last night and I find myself out of sorts.

My friend Kandys was fabulous. She never failed to make me laugh. I'll never forget when she pulled a tampon out in the middle of our science class thinking it was a Twix candy bar! That gave her the nickname "Twixie" for the rest of our senior year! We had great years traveling and performing in the marching band together. I had spent the last three years or so trying to reconnect with her without any luck except for mutual friends.

To share with you the type of person she was, I found an old journal that she had given me for Christmas during our senior year in high school. She wrote me a letter inside the first page and I'd like to share it:

I have enjoyed being in your company. Mr. Meade's class has been the best and band also. Guess what? I LOVE YOU! And I always will! Never forget that. Hope you have fun and great luck in your future. Follow your dreams and most of all your heart. You are special and you can do anything your heart desires. Don't let anyone say otherwise! I ♥ U! Bye bye! Don't miss me too much! Don't forget me!

Love ya always,

Those words will always stick with me. I'll never forget the laughs and good times. Thank you for everything, Kandys. You will be missed! I'll love you forever!
