The End of an Era

My best friend Dave left this morning.
 He moved back to Utah to finish his schooling
Am I sad?
That is certainly an understatement
Saying goodbye last night was horrible.
If any of you know me I cry at everything.
And I get very attached to people.
He and I knew each other his 1st Sunday here 2.5 years ago
and we have been friends ever since.
We have done everything together from movie going,
TV watching, road trippin', long chats, and even some heart break happened
Thanks for everything Dave, I love you tons!!

This was at his going away party
A Masquerade :)
I will miss him terribly but I know I will see him again
and we will definitely keep in touch.
It just isn't the same without him here.
Luckily I have amazing friends here that are very supportive
and willing to make me feel better and distracted.
I love you all so much, thank you!!

Gratitude Rocks!!!
- having a friend read me like a book, having a friend that will let me cry all night, having a friend that will let me be myself completely, having a friend that cares for me
