  4. my dear sweet beautiful friend Aprille, every now and then i would think of you wonder where you are and how your doing, and i’d say to myself ” she is gone with the wind” what my late dad used to call you. two years ago i saw this key chain of an ewok i thought about our trip to California with you my family and my parents. we visited the place where the ewok movie was filmed so i bought it. For the longest time i thought of you, remembering the times we’ve spend together, fun times. When i watch” Legends of the Fall” it brought back memories of you and Marla. And then i stumble across your late dad’s obituary.and i read your name at predeceased. no way i said she can’t be really be gone with the wind… oh Aprille i miss you dearly you were more then just a friend, you were a sister to me and i will always love you.. RIP….
