Oh, Sherrie. I just don’t know what to say. To say I love and miss you just isn’t enough. I miss our weird inside jokes. Our shared love of coffee and scrabble and books. Our midnight chatting. You messaging me every time Steel Magnolias was on. I just miss you, and I will until we meet again. I couldn’t ask for a better best friend. I am yours always! I love you ❤️
