My Dear Darnetha, my heart is broken. I never even knew you were sick. I wondered why you didn't return my calls and why your mailbox was full. I know we didn't talk everyday and I hadn't talked to you since your Birthday, but whenever we did, we made up for lost time. I would not have known this if God hadn't told me to call Dorothy. My sweet friend, please Rest In Heavenly Peace and I'll be looking for you when my time comes. I love you and may God strengthen your children and take them through. I will always love you. I only wish you had called me.
