Keyah it has been so hard to understand why you´re gone. I´m devastated, I miss your voice. I want you to call me, knowing that you won´t call anymore is so hard. I love you and now you can rest. You were one of my closest friends at Fisk, always trying to drag you to parties. I´ll forever miss you!
