A Fond Farewell

Have you ever had someone come into your life and make a profound impact? Maybe you knew this person almost your whole life and it took growing up, moving away, and then coming back home to realize what this person would mean to you. Then, that person moves away and you are left with a whole in your life that will never truly be replaced.

My friend Kendra is that person to me. Kendra was always just the younger sister to my friend Jaime. I played alongside her most of my life, but never really got to know her. That is until about 6 years ago when we moved back "home." Kendra had grown to be this well-respected, eloquent, super-stylish and sophisticated hero in our home town. I was amazed. But I was more honored than anything that she would be my friend.

And while we are all still reeling from the aftermath of her sudden move across the country, I will hold fast to the many fond memories we have made over the past 6 years. I love you Kendra. You will forever be missed!

  1. What a sweet post Kate...thank you for making my heart swell today! I'm just now reading your blog b/c I've had your OLD blog address!!! I was wondering why you hadn't updated since "Fall Soccer." I knew slacking on the blog was not my friend Kate's style but I also know how crazy life has been for you the past few months. Thank you for taking the time to make me feel special. I love & admire you more than you know and I too am honored to call you a friend...even 900 miles apart.
