    I am April renea Meggs. Leslie was my best friend my and sister my son Flynn James pace calls her aunt Leslie till this day. I have been lost without her support and would of died 6 years before she did but she took Flynn and I to Marion hospital and demanded that I get a bed or she would lay in front of the register and not move till they took care of me. And when the dr saw she was serious I got a bed right away. I was told that I was 30 min away from dieing by my Dr. I had more support from my beautiful friend than I ever had from anyone else. Flynn n I miss her so much and I can’t wait to see you again so I can make sure you know how much you mean to me. And how much everything you have done for me that no one on this planet ever would. It hurts to think my best friend is gone and I have never been able to get close to anyone else but you. You are the only one who I would pop back pimples for Lol. You are the only person I have ever had that truly always was there when I needed you and I have felt like I was not there for you and I hate it. I have been so lonely without you I really want my best friend back. I want to take pictures of our boob’s at the mall,run off with the guy we just knew we had to have. Haha remember passing Lucas Hampton Back and forth. I would give anything just to watch Casper and cuddle with my Leslie. I have not been doing this good without you I needed you hell do know. I have never had anyone who I could count on like I could you. I would love to redo the day our parents stripped at the fair and I went with you and your dad everclear and juicy juice. I puked on your dads glass table and he made me feel better by showing us how to use everclear to make crack lol he was convinced that I knew what it was lol. I was clueless haha remember when I moved from Chicago . You where the first person that talked and I have loved you so very much every since. I am very hurt and I’m also a little pissed I told you all the time to drive right. I had no one but u n your wonderful attitude to have my back and you are still the one n only person that has dropped whatever you where doing.just to help me I have been without a friend for so long now and it’s not fair I still need you. You better be ready to Be there at the pearly gates when I get to heaven and if you are not. I will gladly take care of you this time and come get you wherever you are till I can hold you again please still have my back from the other side and I hope you and my daddy are together. You both have the most beautiful souls and I will see you when God calls me home. And you better be taking care of your niece Joplin Monroe and by the way Flynn is 18 now and he still loves you too talk soon my soul sister I love you always
