David... I met you online 20 years ago on a site called We had this crazy undying need to talk to each other.  We maintained our friendship on the phone and Myspace. We swore the love of our friendship would never ever die and if we were both ever single at the same time we would get married and forever love each other.  I checked on you from time to time and even if years went by, we picked up right where we left off. Serendipity if you will.  Today was no different... I was looking for you to see if you were okay... I am heartbroken.  A piece of my soul is forever gone and I will look for you on the other side so we can pick up where we left off. I would love to sit in the stars with you and talk about our journeys, the places we've been and the people who have changed our lives.  You certainly changed mine David, Forever, Hailee

I have many, many memories of David. 
One very prominent is when I gave him my locker combination so he could borrow my science book. He left a large not written on the inside of my locker, " Thanks for the book Sweets. I love you always. Your Best Friend,
He will forever hold a place in my heart.

I remember when I would watch Jessica and he would come over and play with her. He was so funny to watch. He let her win every race, pull his hair as she tried to climb on his back and cuddle up in his arms when they were done. He also walked me through some very dark and hard times. I wouldn't be who I am if he hadn't cares and talked me through it.
