Shasta my friend

To me your an angel in disguise full of intuition, intelegent, and wise...
Always giving and helping thru the good times and the bad.
You're the best friend I ever had...
If I had one wish it would surely be
to give to you as much as you have given to me..
Though I have put our friendship thru some cloudy days (especially growing up) You've been my sunshine in so many ways...
Through trials, and test right beside me you stood. And gave me your hand whenever you could.
Thank you so much my sister my friend
My gratitude for you has no end!!!!!
