Gone too soon

I was trying to think of some elegant words to say, something meaningful and inspiring, but it doesn't seem like there are any.
And so I'll sit here and do my best to piece words together like pearls on a string, hoping that when they're all together it makes something... coherent.

I hope you know how you changed my life
I hope you know how much I looked up to you, how you were my childhood hero
I hope you know I remember all the times we played F.B.I in the basement of your house, and how you always let me make up the crimes because you knew it was my favorite, and how you'd be Jack and I'd be Sue.
I hope you know that you're the one person in this world that's taught me most about forgiveness and mercy, something I'll never forget.
I hope you know that I love you, that family is stronger than anything, and you were a part of mine.

Dear Alisha,
I feel like I've known you forever and yet so often I've been distant. I can't imagine the pain and hurt both you and your family are going through. I wish I had words and actions that could fix the whole thing. I want you to know that I'm praying for you guys fervently. If you ever want anyone to talk to, I'm here for you. I've not experienced the same thing, but two of my good friends (they were brothers) died in a car crash in August. I blew off hanging out with them the day before; it was a huge mistake. If you ever just need a virtual shoulder to cry on, or someone to listen, email me. I can give you my Facebook, Skype, cll #. I'm here for you girl. Hold on <3
