Dearest V,

You would have turned 37 today. I so wish I could tell you Happy Birthday in person, but I can’t. I will mourn your death until the day I die. But I also want to celebrate your life and how great it was to know you  and be your friend. I will cherish that time in my life forever. And you will always be my best friend.

With all my love,

Kevin

Dearest Veronica,

For six years I have mourned the loss of the best friend I will ever have and it still does not get any easier. Your friend Christine passed away last month and I just hope the two of you are having fun and being crazy together somewhere in heaven.  If anyone deserves eternal happiness it would be you. I cherish the time we had together and I hope someday that there will be more. As long as I am alive, I will cherish the memories I have of you.

With all my love,

Kevin

Dearest V,

Every year when this date arrives I experience the same horrific feelings of loss that I did 5 years ago. They say that time heals all wounds, but I am not sure that some ever truly heal. They just scar over until something reminds us of how much hurt we truly feel. You were my best friend and will always have that place in my heart. I will cherish your memory and how much you mean to me until the day I leave this earth as well.

With all my love,

Kevin

Dearest Veronica,

It has been four years now since you left us and it still hurts me to the core. I miss you so much – your sweet smile, your sense of humor, the way you saw beauty in so many things. But what I miss the most is just talking with you and hanging out with you. You were the truest of friends and I will never forget all that you did for me. I will always feel blessed that you were a part of my life. I will never forget you.

Dearest V,

It has been three years now since you left us and the enormity of that loss for me only grows with time. They say time heals all wounds, but the ones that reach the depths of your soul never truly heal. Life without the ones you love is never really the same. And to paraphrase this song from your favorite band, the Beatles: In my life, there have been many friends I have loved, and will always have deep affection for. But I will always love you more.

Dearest Veronica,

It has been two years since you left us and I still hurt as much today. I am listening to the only song that comes close to describing how I feel about you as I type this. I miss you so much – your smile, your warmth, your kindness. You were the nicest person and the best friend anyone could ever be fortunate enough to have.

Dearest Veronica,

It has been one year since you left us, and I am still at a loss as to what to say. Words just can not convey the sense of loss I feel, because I know I lost the best friend I will ever have. You are the sweetest, most kind hearted person I have ever known, and the world is just a colder place without you.

It is so unfair that such a beautiful person was afflicted with such a terrible disease. I know how hard you fought, trying to find the right medications and dealing with all the side effects and pain along the way. I know many people did not know what you were going through, but I just feel they should. It just makes how sweet and wonderful you were to everyone all the more remarkable.

I miss your laugh and your smile every single day. Whenever the sense of loss becomes too great, I try to remember all the great times I had with you, and take comfort that I still have those wonderful memories. You will always be in my mind, my heart, and my soul.

With great love and sadness,

Kevin
