When we returned to school, I spent more time hanging out with her than ever before. Spring eventually turned to summer. Instead of returning home to work as usual, I went home for a week before flying back to take my General Studies Senior Capstone. Once again, Katie proved how amazing and loyal she was when I received some of the worst news of my life. I’m not going to type that all over again, I will start crying, but Katie had driven to North Carolina a few hours before and offered to turn around and drive back that night. She didn’t, but I was touched by the offer. She (and our other friend Tori) were there when she got back.
I don’t know what I would have done without them. (Or Holly and Kelly – they were amazing that summer too!)
