BC: xoxo, Your soul Sister, Claire | Clare O Hare O Clare O Hare First of all, can I tell you how much I have enjoyed being a "Cla(i)re" squared with you for the last 4 years? I remember the first time I saw you at the floor meeting and was amazed by your global identity, and the night you and Anna came by to start a dance party in my room, and the night we tried to learn makeup (fail) in your room. I'm so glad we are going to be roomies (or at the very least neighbors) next year--it shall be fantastic. We can tower over everyone together, wear "matching" white coats (apparently) and work towards the eventual goal of traveling around the world like your Grandfather. You're brilliant, beautiful, and lovely in every way. And someday, I am convincing your mother to let me watch some old dance videos of you, so I can be even more in awe of you :). I can't wait to see you as a doctor! I would trust you with my life. I have barely tapped the ridiculous number of pictures we have together, and I'm making this book before spring break, your final AMAZING 22nd Birthday, or even MardiGras 2011. But the pictures won't stop here, so this is just a tiny sample of some of the fun we've had. Thanks, Comrade :) Also, although I do think you should get a car next year, I will always remember taking you to the Union Station over the last few years: I've really enjoyed that- even at the 3 AM dropoff and in the dead of winter. Basically, let's stay friends forever so that I can continue to marvel at and be a part of your life as it goes on (Because I think maybe our lives are just about to take off). I'm so proud to call you my friend; finding you girls has been the highlight of my time at SLU. Thank you for being there for me, and for sharing your life with me. You'll always be in my prayers and I'll be supporting you as we keep on learning. Love, Love love, -Claire (the other one :). )
