    I’m so thankful that kelsie and I got to meet last year and had the best talk. We were good friends in school. We had a class out in one of the old prefab buildings.i remember that long brown hair and smile that was so pretty. We talked more than we studied! We had a small group of girls that hung out together she was so sweet .last year we had a classmate to pass away so we texted each other and decided to meet to pay our respects. It was early in the day so we were only ones there , so we sit and talked she told me about her family as we left we planned on getting together again soon. That reunion will be in Heaven now rest in Jesus arms my dear friend .
