Dear Best Friend,
You just finished college and are ready for the real world. I can’t begin to express how proud I am of our accomplishments. You have been such an inspiration to me with everything you do. I have never seen someone work so hard during my college career, and I admire your perseverance through any hard struggles you have faced. You have been a very big role model in my life, and have motivated me into working hard like you have.
Thank you for being there whenever I needed you. Thank you for wiping away every tear you saw leave my eyes, and bringing them back in joy by making me laugh so hard I am on the floor crying. You never let me be upset over the little things in life; you have shown me to appreciate them in the best ways possible. You have made me believe I can get through any challenge I face while in college. Thank you for being the sunshine to my cold rainy days.
We have shared the greatest memories in a small amount of time, which I will cherish forever. The things we have laughed at, the bond we have shared, the memories we’ve made are all going to be in my heart. I’m going to miss our movie nights and spontaneous trips to the stores around town. Whether our conversations happen in the dorm, or during short car rides, we have the best heart-to-hearts. Thank you for being so understanding and letting me rant about my stressful times during college.
Saying goodbye is always hard, but you have assured me that I will be able to create more memories with you even if you have graduated before me. I have loved watching you make the world a better place while in college, and can’t wait to see what you do for it while out of college. I could not be more proud of you and the beautiful soul you have within you. You have a heart made of gold, and I know it will shine even more with every kind act you do.
I wish you the best of luck at “adult-ing.” I can’t wait to hear about all your success and how you will use your degree to do what you love. The faith and confidence I have in you is more than you will ever know.
Thank you for everything. As Hannah Montana has sung to us in her song “Wherever I Go": “I know I’ll miss you but we’ll meet again someday.” I know we will, and I can’t wait to see you again.
Your lifelong friend
