    mrs rae. not only were you my piano teacher. but you were my best friend. i never thought that you would get me at all. we’d both laugh and cry together. i wish i was there for your last moments. i miss you with all my heart. to me, since my grandma passed 6 years ago, meeting you, i felt like i was talking to her again. it felt like a second chance. and i thank god for all the times i’ve had with you. i love you. i know im only a 16 year old and i dont understand what you were suffering from, all i know is that you’re in gods hands now and ill never forget the memories we shared.
