Eulogy for Friend
xxxxxxxx’s admirers, and that would be everyone who knew her, smile when we think of her. We can’t help ourselves.Each of us has special memories we want to share. We have compiled a few of these memories that we believe best illustrate the wonderful personality of our beloved friend.
xxxxxxxx was always determined, sometimes enraged, but rarely sad.
Enjoy these stories. As long as we have them in our hearts, we have xxxxxxx.
At the xxxxxxxxx Conference xxxxxx roomed with xxxxxxx, xxxxx and xxxxx. She was always the First one up, usually by 5:00 AM. BUT she was always the LAST one to get ready!
On the xxxxx trip to xxxxxxx, xxxxxxx slept in those terrible green pajamas while everyone else slept in shorts or sweats! But that was xxxxxxx. She dressed up every day as if she was off to New York or Paris. xxxxx always said xxxxxxx was in a time warp because she was wearing clothes from another generation!
xxxxxxxx was the “Debate Queen”, that’s what everyone called her. On the bus trip to xxxxxxx, xxxxxxx climbed over the seats to view her opinion on at least five different issues! She would never back down.
When xxxxxxx started to go off about an issue at work or on the weekend, xxxx, xxxxx, and all the guys would howl (like the hurricane was blowing). xxxxxxx would just roll her eyes at them and smile.
xxxxxxx loved to read. Everyone always teased her about those “dirty” novels! She could read a different one every day.
During xxxxxxxx practice xxxxxxx’s freshman year, xxxxxxxx accidentally hit xxxxxxx on the head with her xxxx, but xxxxxxx really got upset and chased xxxxxxx around the entire school with the xxxxxxxxxx!
xxxxxxx loved chocolate–and she’d get sooo hyper when she ate it! Taco Bell was also her favorite. She could be found there every weekend with different friends.
xxxxxx xxxxxx was bored one day and went through xxxxxxxx’s purse. He bit her drivers license and credit cards and actually left teeth marks on them. xxxxxxx often showed them to her friends and laughed about it.
One night xxxxx, xxxxxxx, xxxxx, xxxxx, and xxxxxxx went on a TPing spree. xxxxxx pulled into her driveway as they were TPing her tree in the front yard. They were running off and xxxxxxxx started picking up the rolls of toilet paper. She said, “We may be able to use them later!” She had also insisted on color coordinating the paper before it was purchased!
Whenever you saw xxxxxxxx, you saw her with that great big cloth bag. It probably weighed more than she did.
xxxxxxx’s dream store was The GAP. She always wanted to work there. When she called from xxxx State to tell her Mom that she had gotten there O.K., her Mom told her that the GAP had called that night. xxxxxxx called the GAP long distance and they told her she had got the job. She was so excited.
xxxx and xxxxxxx were counselor’s aides during the seventh period. They were stuck together in a little room every day. xxxx said, “I came to know her very well during the long conversations we had. We talked about everything, and that is what I’ll miss the most. Her dreams, her ideas, her likes and dislikes, her caring nature, and her thoughts are now a part of me.”
We all have our special memories of xxxxxxx. She remains a part of us and will never be forgotten.
