What a week this has been. =\
I lost a close friend this past weekend. Her name was Carmen, and she was beautiful inside and out.
We met on the forum that the Paranormal Research Society has on their website. We commented on a few posts together; we private messaged each other; and then we began to speak on AIM. We spoke about everything you can think of, and then some. When I was having a rough time and needed a shoulder, I'd turn to her, and she would do the same for me.
They say that online friends aren't the same as "IRL" friends. I find that to be..well, pure bullshit. I've found a lot of my closest friends online, and to me, they are as important as family.
Carmen, you were one of the greatest influences of my life, and for that I thank you. I looked up to you while we spent our time together; I will continue to do that for forever. I loved you like a sister, and always will. Thank you for the opportunity you gave me to know you and become close with you. This week has not been easy-everything reminds me of you, and for some reason, I can't get the tears to stop coming. I know they will soon..and I look forward to that, because I know you wouldn't want me to be sad about your crossing over. I miss you hunny. I love you. <3
