Natalie Marcus scribbled on a sheet of pink notepaper. It had been 14 years since her best friend, Angela had died. "It's pretty stupid to right a letter to a dead person" she thought. But she kept writing.

How are things in heaven? Ok, I know you can't answer me on that one. It's been 14 years since I last saw you, and I still miss you a lot.
I still remember all the fun we had as kids. We shared 15 summers together. We knew each other's deepest darkest secrets. We would play basketball, braid eachother's hair, and try to play my Blondie tapes backwards to check for subliminal messages. We would always talk about how we would someday be in a band together, and be rich and famous. Then I heard you were sick. I would have done anything to save you. I even donated some of my bone marrow to you. You died just a few weeks later, at only 16 years old.
When you died, I never thought I could go on without you. I wanted to crawl into bed and cry all day. I actually did that for a while. i tried to kill myself, twice. But then I finally got the strength to go live again.
So where am I now? I'm 29 years old,I have a wonderful husband and a 3- year old son and yes, I did end up being rich and famous. I am in a rock band called Organized Chaos, with 4 great girls. You would have loved them. Oh yeah, and our bassist's neice, Lindsey is just amazing. She's 14 years old; she was born on May 4, 1990. That was 2 days after you died. You sent her from heaven, didn't you? You would have loved her, too.
14 years of living without you haven't been easy. I still occasionally think of what it would have been like if you'd survived, and there are still days I want to crawl into bed and cry. But gradually I have learned to live again, and remember you but move on with my life.
I love you and I still miss you,
