Happy Birthday!! It’s the big 15. How exciting is that? I have so much to say, but I don’t know if I can condense it into one page of simple words. I sure am gonna try though.
Jess, I want you to know how important you really are to me. I know I say it all the time, but it just seems like I don’t make my point clear enough. I can’t stress it enough to you that you really are my best friend. You are something out of this world Jess. You are one of the most intelligent young women I have ever met, not to mention sweet, kind-hearted, happy, hilarious, loving, and absolutely beautiful. You have a heart of gold and a personality that should be cherished and preserved in a glass box. You have such an amazing effect on me and my life daily. You make me laugh when I all I want to do is cry. Your smile is as contagious as the flu and whenever you’re sad I feel like I should be too. You really are an absolutely incredible individual. I have never in my whole life been so lucky and proud to have someone like you. You, and only you, are my best friend. You’re like my sister in a way. I have lost so much in my life, including friends that I thought I would never lose, and now I have you. When I’m with you, it feels like I know I’ll never lose you as a best friend and all my problems and stress just melt away. Happiness is what you bring to everyone hun. You are unlike anyone I have ever met. There’s just something about you that draws people close to you and make them want to trust you. I know you would never lie to me or keep anything from me. Our friendship is perfect which makes me so happy. It seems as though we were meant to be best friends and I’m glad we’ve finally figured that out because I don’t think I would make it through high school without you. You are my shoulder to cry on and my arm to lean on and I am the same for you. There are not that many people in my life that I would die for, but when it comes to you I would die a million times over if that was what you wanted me to do. You are the best, best friend anyone could ever ask for and I appreciate everything about you. Thank you so much Jess, for everything you do for me. I’m ridiculously lucky to have you and I can’t wait to see what our friendship brings in the future. I love you so much Jess. I hope your birthday and every other day is perfect. Best of luck in all that you do, and remember that I am always here for you no matter what.

Love Always, Katie

PJ, hats off to you for having the bravery to write this! Your story resonates with "old folks" like me as well as with your peers. Plus, you're a good writer! With your determination and willingness to talk about difficult emotions, I'm sure you'll accomplish anything you put your mind to! All the best.
