Anon: for Ms. Hendricks
I walked into the school grounds Monday like any other day but something struck me as odd, the school was dead quiet, the laughter was replaced with silence, tears instead gossiping, hugging instead of the usual running around. But as strange as it sounds I knew straight away what had happened. To get to were I sit I have to make my way past the drama block - including the staff room. My feet felt lead. I stood and stared in through the glass doors, all the teachers were standing there hugging all except for my drama teacher. I will never forget the first term of year 10. My life was completely messed up and I felt like there was no point of existing anymore. I was always a bubbly person, full of life the centre of attention, but as my life started to go down the drain so did my moods. And nobody picked up on it. Nobody except my drama teacher. It was her first year teaching and not to many people in the class liked her, but we got along really well. I poured my heart to her after school one day and she sat with me for an hour and a half as I cried and cried and told her I'd lost the will to live. She hugged me, told me to be strong, life gets better. And she sat and listened to me. No one has ever done that for me before. After we'd finished she offered to drop me home. When I got out of the car she handed me her phone number and told me to never hesitate to call her no matter what. I went inside feeling the best I had in ages, knowing that there was someone out there who cared whether I lived or died. My dad was late home that night; he said there'd be a traffic accident holding traffic back for miles. He said there'd been a fatality. I stood staring in through the glass doors, my legs suddenly went weak. I dropped to the ground and sobbed and sobbed. I felt like my whole world had come crashing down around me. Cursing over and over again that life wasn't fair. I still miss Ms Hendricks, more than words could possibly imagine. There's a small memorial garden at school in memory of her, it's my job to tend to it and to maintain it. I sit there all the time, talking to her and telling her everything. Although she's not there I like to think that she's listening to me somewhere. Thankyou Miss Nicole Hendricks, for listening to me when no one else would, for giving me the will to live.

If someone is a true friend then they wont force you to do something you dont want to do
Kacy: for Lynn
~*~ Lynn ~*~ I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my friend...more like my mom! I hope you know how much I truly deeply value you. Through the toughest time of my life when the whole world was against me no matter if I wsa right or wrong, you stood by me. You are an encouragement and inspiration. You've touched my heart in an undescribably beautiful way; words are an understatement. There was a time where I didnt believe angels ever exsisted until the moment I saw a neverending sparkle in your eyes....Thanks for being there! I hope that I can be a portion of what you have been to me! I love You....
Amian: for Rachel
My dearest friend is Rachel. Her parents got a divorce, and i comforted her. The next year my parents separated, she did much more than comfort me. She helped me discover who i was and helped me keep my sanity. To her i am forever greatful and in her debt.

Laura: for Becki
We've been through so much stuff together.. happy times, sad times, times when i thought i wouldn't make it through, when just having you by my side got me through but mostly times when we just couldn't have laughed any harder!I know people can't understand what we share, but we know and we appreciate it and thats what matters in my eyes.Thankyou for making me happier than i thought possible and no matter where we end up, we'll always have each other! I love you monkey-angel, more than life itself, Laura
Anon: for J
I have know J. for only about 7 months but he already has become one of the best friends I've ever had. He tried to come across as a smart alack and a person who doesn't care but I know other wise. When I was suicidal a couple of months ago he was the one who stopped me for committing suicide when I tried to attempt it one night. He held me while I cried and when I was scared to death that something bad was going to happen again- he reassured me it wouldn't. When I'm sad and depressed, he always somehow makes me smile and laugh and forget about all my problems. He is the one person in my life I know I can talk to no matter what. He is the definition of a true friend.

The Last Letter to a Lost Friend Dear Friend- Well today is been nine years. Its hard to believe it been that long. Who would have known that in our innocence we wouldn't realize what was really happening. I look back on that day and I always wonder what I could have changed. It hurts me to think that we really never had the chance to say good-bye. I wonder what would have happened if neither of us had went to the Rolladium that day. I would have never known what happened to you and where you went. Sometimes I think it would have been better that way, then I wouldn't be left in this pain, I would only be left to wonder what happened, I would have just accepted it was out of my hands. But I can't accept that its out of my hands because somehow I feel like there is something I could have done, and in some ways can still do to say good-bye.and get closure. I wrote you a letter almost 4 years ago after I found out that your dad still lived in your old house. In a lot of ways I thought it would be the key that would reopen the door that had been locked for so long and we would be friends again. Looking back, it was a juvenile thought, yet in some ways I still harbor the thought that maybe someday along the way you and I will become friends again, or at least meet again and say good-bye. I've often wondered if I have seen you in a shopping mall, walking down the street or at the movies but just never realized it was you because it has been so long. For a long time I felt as if it was my fault that you and I were no longer in contact, like somehow I could have stopped what happened that caused us to lose contact. After I wrote you and you wrote back and then the letters back and forth subsided, once again I felt as if I had failed you and our friendship somehow. For a long time I blamed myself. Finally I realized, it wasn't my fault and it wasn't yours either. It was something neither of us had control of. Today I decided it was time to say good-bye and let go, although it's really hard. Its something I have had to think over and over again. Its so hard, and it hurts because in a lot ways I am still that little girl who wants to play with her best friend, yet I am the young women who realizes that its not feasible and realistically that day roller-skating was probably the last time I will ever see you. In a lot of ways it hurts to think that I am actually letting go of a hope I have held so dear for so long, yet I am comforted by my memories. So for now in case we never meet again, thank you for all you have taught me, the memories and for being a friend to me. Love Always, Me
Shelby: for Brittni and Brianne
~*MY BEST FRIENDS*~ I guess that you could say that I have a lot of best friends. Some guys, some girls. But there is one or two, that I feel like I'll know for the rest of my life! Their names are Brittni and Brianne. Of course I have a lot, but I feel that they will always be there for me. So, if any of my friends are out there reading this, i just want to say, I LOVE YA!!
Anon: for Drew
my friend drew has saved my life as well as my best friend's. he is the most selfless person i know. if i was able to proclaim a saint, he would be one. he's always there even when i ignore him because i have a boyfriend. he has no idea how amazing he is. thank you for being you, drew.
Blondie: for Jean Jean
You helped me believe that there is love at first sight, and that it happens in friendships. We may have a large age difference between us, we may also be half a world away from each other, but in friendship there's no such thing as age discrimination, neither are there physical or social barriers. You ought to know how much I respect and admire you, my friend. I cherish all the moments we are together and, really, you are the only one crazy enough to scribble messages with me on a beach. There has never been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. We will be friends for as long as God allows us to be together. Thank you for being the best thing about me.
Lindsey: for Amy
Hey I just wanted to dedicate this to my best friend Amy. My best friend Amy is like one of a kind. She's always there for me, and she doesn't care what other people think about our friendship. We laugh so hard sometimes we have tears in our eyes. I love her to death for listening to all my worries and problems. I love her for just being there and being my best friend. We haven't been best friends for very long but we've grown close, and I hope we stay that way. GOMER! - Love, Lindsey

Anon: for Anon
My speical friend may not be the same as me, nor normal in most ways, but yet for a reason I do not know she can cause me to laugh or to cry at the slightest remark. There have been those days I wanted to strangle her or pound it into her brain that SOMEONE DOES CARE ABOUT HER, but most of the time I find no reason to even care who she is, or even what she's done. I can't quite put it into words exactly what her freindship means to me. So I'll just stop ratttling on.
Lisette: for Bianca and Casey

Dan: for Elnora
This is going out to my best frriend Elnora who I love with all my heart and to tell her that I will alwayz be there for her and forgive her for whatever she does as long as she knows all this then I know she will be there for me too. So to all you out there hope your friendships will be as >strong as ours is. Also never let a guy get in the way of both of you being happy cause will us we never will Love ya like a sister Elnora!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dan: for Elnora
Well here is a story on how me and my friend Elnora become Best friends and what a guy can do to a friendship. Well here it goes........... Elnora was with this guys Salvador and I liked him but she didn't know it yet. Well I told her that I liked him and she started laughing but the fact is she didn't know what i was about to do. I saw salvador one day after a school feild trip and we talked for hours about nothing well he didn't know it but I liked him but he was about to find out. I decided to write him a letter stating that I liked him and that I had liked him since the beginning of the school year. Well he had figured that I would have never liked him. Well soon after that rumors were going around the school about me and him doing things like kissing at a park and messing around while my friend was still with him. And none of them were true yet all my friend decided to believe everything people were saying and not believe me which was messed up. Well soon after that none of my frineds were talking to me anymore and Salvador was tha only one who knew the true besides me. After dealing with that for a while Elnora and Salvador ended up breaking up and then i ended up getting with Salvador a day or two later. Elnora got over the whole thing after a month in 1/2 and we slowing starting talking again and I thought that we were ever going to be that close again but to my surprise we got even closer and once my best friend Monca betraded me i asked Elnora to be my Best Friend and she said yes so that was hella cool. Now we are closer than ever and we both tell eachother things that no one else knows about but us. Well there is a lesson in all this never chose a guuy over a friend no matter how close you guys are in the end if they are you true friends they will get over it and understand what you were thinking. But guys will come and go no matter how much you love them you need your friends to give you advise when they piss you off and you need you friends when your boyfriend isn't talking to you and you don't know why. So basically frineds over guys this is just a law of friendship. also never get with your friends ex it will tear you guys apart and if the guy wasn't good enough for your friend then why would him be good enough for you. thanx Elnora for alwayz being there for me when I needed you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anon: for Anon
You were a stranger at first. Someone I didn't know, never saw, or even thought of caring about. Then it happened. I met you, you met me. You were you and I was me. Crazy to say but we were a lot alike. We became good friends and "had" great times together. You showed me everything in such little time. Like from simple fundamentals to loving me like your little sister. You gave me all the positives, not a single negative. Yout old me you loved me. You weren't that stranger anymore. You were that someone I knew, I saw, and that I cared about. As we spent more time together, the more I gained from you and the stronger I became. I wished that day would never come when I would have to leave. And I never said "goodbye", and then I realized I wouldn't see you that next day. It was hard, but I still had a way to talk to you. After the first few times I heard from you, they stopped. Then days, weeks, and even months passes until we would be renewed. And now again, at this present time, you're back to that stranger I don't know, never see, or sometimes think about. I know you, but I don't. Times have passes, yes I know but I'm still that same kid looking back on those past memories. Thinking that maybe you feel the same. But i don't know anymore. I sometimes wonder if you have even looked back and reflected on the times we've shared together. To me you're a somebody. And I don't know if it's the same for you. You're my hero, inspirator, friend and you're always in my heart. I'll never forget the times we had together or that wonderful smile you have. Maybe you will, I don't know. And that's your choice, you'e free will. but I'll always know that you played a major role in my life. That you're a special someone in my heart. And I'll never forget you. I love you.
Megan: for Jill
Waking up every morning knowing that i have a friend like Jill makes life so worth living! Jill, we've had so many good times and so many to look forward to! I'm so happy i met ya in 5th grade, if it wasn't for that we wouldn't have been such good friends! We've been friends for 6 years and they have been the best of my life! I never thought I would have a friend as good as you! You've cheered me up, made me smile, and just have always been here for me and i can't thank you enough for that. There is nobody like you and nobody could ever take you place! You'll always be my best friend, even when we're old and scootin' around in our hover rounds! We'll always be close! You ARE just like the sister i never had and have always wanted! I don't know what i'd do without you! You're my other half and you mean so much to me. *But a life lived without you could never be right* I just want to thank you for everything and you know i will always be here for ya til the day i die! I love ya hun!!
Lee: for Ali and Leega
I belive in angels. I believe that everyone in this world has a guardian angel who cares for them, loves them, cherishes them and protects them. I consider myself extremely lucky because I have to guardian angels. They are my two best friends. They are my everything and mean the world to me, like sisters I never had, only even closer. My two best friends, Ali and Leega are two of the few people who understand how I feel and who I am. They understand what's in my heart and know what's on my mind without my even saying it. In the past there may have been times where I have made mistakes or wrong decisions, but even if they could'nt convince me otherwise, they would never say 'I told you so.' They would only concentrate on how to help me make things right. They have always been there for me. In my times of joy, pain, confusion, happiness and grief.I can't remember a single time when they were'nt with me in my time of need either offering advice or sympathy or sharing in on my grief. Whatever affected one of us, affected all of us. However different our choices an decisions are, we are almost like three people sharing the same heart. But sometimes I worry. I worry that I'm not being as good a friend to them as they deserve. I worry that I might not be there for them when they need me most. I worry that the distance between us and our time apart will change me, change us, change this special bond of ours. But all I have to do is take a moment to think about the three of us, how it used to be and every single doubt about our friendship vanishes from my mind. I.ve heard a saying-'Best friendsnbsp like angals with only one wing, that can only fly by embracing each othnbsp It could'nt be more true. Hardly a single day ever gocouldn'ten I do'nt miss them so much it hurts, miss them so much it brings tears to my eyes. I am only learning how to live without them with me. But they are always with me in my heart. They are my gaurdian angels that I will cherish and love them forever. I love you guys and miss you alot.
