Forever 38

I just wanted to leave a final message for all of you beautiful people who have raised me up, cheered me on, supported me, caught me when I fell down & just been there for me as friends from afar & near.

Thank you.
Thank you for everything.
Thank you for seeing me.
Thank you for hearing me.
Thank you for spreading my message & my story.
Thank you for helping me save lives when I was fighting for my own.

I have one request.
That is that you help my legacy live on.
The first of the month – feel it on the first.
Keep sharing my message.
Keep spreading much needed awareness because you never know who is watching.
Don’t let my memory or my story die.

Live your life with no regrets.
Tick off that life list.
Make memories.
Grab life by the balls.

My body might be gone, but my soul lives on.
If 11.11 wishes positive vibes & love could keep me here I’d live forever.

11.11 – make a wish…
I’ll never be far away, just watch out for me.
