Happy 18th A'ndrea by neecolette Happy 18th A'ndrea by neecolette
I was scared, I was scared
Tired and under prepared
But I'll wait for it
If you go, if you go
And leave me down here on my own
Then I'll wait for you

How long must you wait for it,
How long must you pay for it,
How long must you wait for it,
For it

Singing please, please, please
come back and sing to me
to me, me, to me
come on and sing it out
to me, me
come back and sing.

Today, October 15th, would have been ~ondreeuh's 18th birthday. Sometimes I'll just be driving along or just sitting here and think wow, she really is gone. It just doesn't seem right. But that aside. I'm going to write one of the longest emotional tributes in my life and I in no way blame you if you don't want to read it. If i were in your position i guarantee you I wouldn't haha. You guys didn't know her and I understand that. I'm just writing this in her honor and the fact that when I do recall all my memories with her it makes this situation less painful.

It all started in Mrs. Harper's 4th grade class. My first day in there she assigned us homework buddies and I got partnered with A'ndrea. Basically you give each other your phone numbers and when you need help with your homework you call each other. I was best friends with this other guy at the time and A'ndrea thought I was a freakish tom boy lmao. We were so distraught by her decision. Haha but oh my god. It only took days before I had totally ditched everyone and pursued to attaching A'ndrea to my hip. We were best friends almost instantly. Shortly after that even we were sat at opposite ends of the room for laughing all the time. I remember for a while we'd listen to Uncle Kracker on the radio and think we were real bad asses. lmao yeah right. My entire elementary and middle school years consisted of the ridiculous adventures of A'ndrea and Nicholette. Haha most of which consisted of sporting all across southern Missouri. If she played a sport so did I and vice versa. 5 years of my childhood all revolved around MSN, pool parties, sleep overs, and basketball games. Oh and my god awful birthday parties. Haha my little sister pulled her pants off on camera of which i still have. Something about her humor was so unique. We'd discuss the lemon soap in our art room's nasty ass basin and end up laughing uncontrollably I dont even know how. Haha I have this series of videos she took of me ascending up our weight room lockers. She shoved the camera into my crotch and i laughed so hard i fell off and twisted my ankle. She was practically my twin. We had so much in common it was unreal. Same height, same interests, music, humor, basically everything but color haha She's more vibrant than I am. Her little brother and my little sister are also identical. Theyre both crazy fucks and theyre only a year apart in age lmao I'm still convinced they're going to grow up and marry each other. Haha and have many power ranger themed battles even in old age. So.many things i loved about her. So. many memories I have of her. I openly expressed every day that I would do anything for her even wipe her ass if she were to tragically become crippled. Funnel feed her, smack a rude bitch, let her borrow my "hyperventillation" sack. Haha She was one of the closest friends I've ever had and will have. A part of me is gone that I won't regain until I see her again. I can't tell you how many times last month i had almost wished I'd been in the car with her to help her fly to heaven, and make sure she didn't get lost. I hope her grandma lended her a hand :) Because she went there. She was so fun loving, so wonderful to her family and friends. One day my twuddy Andre, one day we'll meet again and we're going to pick out shacks from above and laugh, or walk around with plastic bags on our heads, or you can even photograph my feminine care products. Lmao, it'll be just like old times. I love you so much, and I wish you were here to celebrate your adulthood with us. I'll be stopping by today, to drop off your flowers :)

Yeah A'ndrea was one of those special friends that knew everything about me, what i wanted to be, who i was, what i liked. I'd have given my life for her. I'm glad you have an A'ndrea too :) make sure you keep them close to you. She wasn't even drunk, she had her seat belt on. She was just backing out of a driveway. You just never know what's going to happen.

Thanks my entire relationship with her was beautiful. Completely unconditional she loved me regardless of whatever dorky fandom i partook in or who i hung around with just an all around wonderful friend :) The good realy do die young. Well I've accepted the fact that she's gone, but that strange feeling will just never go away. It's like someone just threw a part of you down the toilet haha but enough of my rambling already :XD: I hope you never have to go through something like this.

well words of advice: don't let them drive haha especially at night. This is the 2nd friend I've lost due to highway crashes. However this one was much closer to me :( friendship is truly a sacred thing what i had with a'ndrea i know will continue long after death :)
