My Beautiful Friend Alette,

I met you for the first time when I worked for Real Estate Closing Services. I was delivering a package and you introduced me to Jon. He said oh yeah youre Mercedes right? You told him no its Miranda and she isnt a car!

The things you used to say that I will miss the most

Sorry not sorry
They just put down in your Mrs Doubtfire voice
Its getting hot in here so take off all your clothes from the song by Nelly in your indian voice impression
I cant want to (that came from Maison)
We dont say shut up
Is it nap time?
Thats my ride when a truck would honk their horn outside while we were at work.
I think you need a DRINK
I dont wish it
Oh Jon!
She goes to that church
"Let me get your nurse"

Some of my favorite memories

You used to have Jon buy you popcorn from the store down the street. You would eat all the yellow ones out of the bag then offer the rest to us!

The color run in Binghamton that I talked you into and the amount of times you stopped to

The four of us went to Rochester to see Shinedown and then ride home. OMG!

The Syracuse football game the four of us went to. You and I spent most of the time talking about life while the guys had a good time.

Going to get our notary certification together. We were late and the proctor almost didnt let us in. You gave him some excuse for why we were late.

The wine fest that became an annual event we did together. We always worked half day then rode together to Watkins Glen. The most fun was the year we dressed up as Flinstones. You were Wilma, Jon was Fred, Travis was Barney and I was Betty.

You made me chocolate covered bananas for my birthday because you knew they were my favorite.

Listening to your stories about the girls (Julie and Ondrea) when they were little. You were always so proud of them!

Trips to the beauty supply store during our lunch or shoe shopping even though Jon never gave us the credit card.

The pink concert with Lizzy and your sister Cathy. What an amazing experience!

The advice you would give me about the crazy things that would happen in my life. You always knew what to say.

Telling me the funny things that happened over the weekend at the shore or on one of your trips so I could pick on Jon.

The interesting names that people would mistake us for. Alert, Aleet, Arlene, Arlot and trying to see who would have the funniest name. I think that might be how I got my name Mirna.

Our healthy eating habits and picking on anyone that ate a cookie (JON)!

Our walks around Ithaca to get some exercise at lunch.

You laughing so hard at Travis with his impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The You Tube video of the famous quotes you two watched for what seemed like an hour by the campfire.

When you would buy a new pair of shoes or clothing but you didnt try it in the store. When you got home it didnt fit so you would bring it to me.

The things I will miss


Your singing! You always knew how to make me laugh by singing random songs or ones you made up.

Your beautiful smile, your nails with the crazy colors and cant forget the party nail, that blonde hair and the times you made me cut it with scissors in the office

Sharing stories with you about my boys. You always wanted to know what was going on with them.

Your personality, your sarcasm, your jokes, your wittiness, just everything..

In the eight years of spending every week day with you its become more than just a friendship. Youve become my family. Youve been like a mom to me but at the same time my best friend.

I remember the text message in middle of the night from Jon when you found out about the tumor and how scared I was for you. After that first surgery I thought you were super woman when you showed up at work two weeks later. Since you found out about the cancer you have been the strongest person in the world. Anytime anyone asked me how you were I just simply said you were amazing. You have gone through so much in the past two years, more than most people in a lifetime. You have put up an amazing fight. I love you so much and will never forget all the great times we shared.

Your Forever Friend,

Even though I can no longer be with her .... she will always be with me.
