You were my role model when we were kids. You inspired me so much, from the bright clothes you wore to the colors in your hair. You inspired me to become a safety patrol even if it was only for 2 weeks before I moved. I made you a rubber band flower in 6th grade, I wonder if you remember that. It hurts that I didn't talk to you much after that. We had more in common than I knew at the time and we would of had something to talk about. I saw the Little Shop of Horrors play with my grandfather at Edgewater in freshman year. When I saw you on stage I felt happy seeing that you were the same way I remembered you (just more color in your hair). I wanted to message you on Facebook and tell you how good the play was, but I didn't know how to start a conversation after 2 years. I guess we were closer than we knew, you were close with two of my friends. You really didn't judge anyone, you were amazing. I have so much guilt knowing I could have talked to you. I wonder if that would have changed things. I wonder if it would be harder than it is now. I wish it were me instead sometimes, but I know you wouldn't want any of that. You would want everyone to smile at the thought of you, not cry. I don't know what its like where you are now. But maybe you can see everyone who cares about you. Maybe you saw how beautiful your funeral service was. I miss you so much, Starr. I hope you can see this message. I hope you're at peace.
