R.I.P A'ndrea White by neecolette R.I.P A'ndrea White by neecolette
This is a drawing of one of my best friends. We had portfolio together for 2 hours every day and she volunteered to let me draw her for college. The day i finished it and showed it to her, she died. I think ill frame this and put it on her memorial at the visitation.
I remember when i first met her in elementary school. I thought she was a prick and she thought i was a complete dweeb. Later on we clicked like crazy and giggled to the extent that we were moved across the room from eachother haha We were nearly inseparable from then on whether it be sports, school, sleep overs we always managed to have so much fun.
Like I said about sports. Without her I'd have probably gave up on them. I spent more time laughing than learning the plays, which is probably why we spent so much time on the bench. In 8th grade track we'd stay up all night on MSN, then come in the next morning and laugh our asses off about what we chatted over and we did that haha On the bus one time we were sitting next to each other on the way to a meet, and my shorts had practically ridden up to my ass crack. And she just slowly looked at me and was like "Nicholette, your shorts" and we laughed so fucking hard i pissed all over the seat. some of my few childhood memories that i can truly look back on and smile.
She owes me a life debt haha at least that's what we settled on. She was always so frail and on crutches 99.9% of the time it was raining that day and she was hobbling to the gym, twisted ankles or something. She started down the stairs and slipped on the wet pavement and i caught her midair haha practically out of nowhere but I just didnt come through this time. God i miss her so much.
These are just a few memories I have of her that I'll always cherish. If i could remember all of them we wouldnt be as good of friends as we were. I loved her like a sister and I just don't know how im going to feel without her for the next 80 years of my pathetic life. R.I.P ~ondreeuh. :heart:

this is a beautiful drawing, and i send my sympathy out to you and a'ndrea's family. the loss of a loved one is a terrible feeling.
neecolette Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2009
thank you :) yeah it is, i think it's probably the worst feeling on this very earth. I don't think anyone should have to deal with so much death at this age. We had another teenage wreck 2 months before, it's just one after the other :(

Oh and I forgot to mention, you could even put your drawing in Community Projects > Tributes > DA remembrances

I hope she is in a better place now :(
