  22. Janae was a very close friend of mine when I was in elementary school, and to know what happened breaks my heart for her, her family, her friends and other loved ones. My heart also hurts for the past friend of mine being gone, and even though I lost touch with her years ago, I still recognize the part she had in my life and look back on it fondly. God bless.

ALWAYS there was never a time i needed my sister and didn’t have her. She was waiting for me to have my baby so she could be his rich TT and she didn’t even get to meet him we joked about what we would do if eachother died because we never actually saw the day coming any time soon i always used to say something like “ion even know what i would do we is not dying no time soon” and now that the time is actually here i truly don’t know what to do i’m so lost without my baby i wish i could’ve saved you nae this is so hard nobody know us how we know each other.

    • I am so so sooooo very sorry for the pain you feel and are having to go through this is a very hard one to take and I just want to say I’m so sorry I hope one day the memory of her will bring a huge smile to your face and joy in your heart. When you dream I hope you and her will be everywhere together and you will find yourself waking up laughing and remembering all of the great things you and her did the whole time. Know this you were and are loved by her forever. Be at peace beautiful one.
