30: Candace, I have been dreading the day you that you would have to move back home for a long time. Every time you thought you may have to go home rather than stay for the semester, I would become depressed, but tried to stay strong for you. I would call my mom in tears asking her what I could do to make sure you could stay. You can ask her, she'll tell you. She helped me plot what to do. One time we went so far that we had planned to go to financial aid ourselves, find out how much you owed and from there, we would figure out some way to pay it. We knew that student accounts probably could not release such information to us, but we were going to try, but God had different plans and you were able to stay anyway. My family may not be a real emotional family, but they do love you and times like those truly revealed this love. No matter how much we fought it, the day we part has not stopped coming. I denied it for so long, but it did not disappear. We have only been able to delay it for so long... We have been through so much together. We laughed, we cried, we gone on adventures, we watched tons of movies, we made a lot of friends, and we found our best friend. You know me better than those who I have been friends with over ten years. You have been a safe haven and a confidant to me. You were there when I was 'on watch', when I had angry outbursts, even when I felt as if everything and everyone was against me, you were there. You have shared your family with me because you know how much I yearn for such a
31: bond. You hold me accountable even when you are not around. You push me to do more and to do better. Candace, you have proven time and time again to be a great friend, and to truly care about me. Thank you for that. I honestly don't know where I'd be without you, but I do know that I would not be who I am today. Thank you for sticking around through it all. Now we must part our ways. You will go home, and I will stay. We knew this day would come. Remember, distance does not have to mean an end to our friendship. We may not see each other, but we can still stay in contact. I want you to know that no matter how far you are, I will always be a phone call away. Know that there is no argument too big, no distance too far for our friendship. We may not be able to be face to face, but we can still laugh together, cry together, and share our highs and our lows. Our friendship may look different, but the heart of it will be the same. I love you and can't wait to see where our lives take us! God bless you, bud. I'll be praying for you. | Love, Delilah
