Julie and I were friends since 3rd grade. She was the reason I had a social life in high school. I was such a nerd, but she was still my friend. She was like the mother in our group of friends, always taking care of us and making sure we got home safely. Even though we drifted apart in our adult lives, I will always have special memories of her and all of the fun we had as kids. Julie was a very special person and wonderful friend.
