'Life is but a dream' ..I wish this wasn't real life and I'd wake up from this nightmare. But I hope in my heart that for you, one day we can fulfill all of your dreams. Your brave, passionate, fearless spirit will help me fight through the end of each day, it will live on forever. There's not a minute that goes by that I don't think about you, you are everywhere I go.. I'd give anything to see your smile or hear the sound of your voice one last time. I'll hold your heart next to mine every day and honor the joy and light you left behind. I miss you.. I wish you knew the true love and happiness I feel inside knowing that you are smiling - shining down on us. May you rest in peace and spread your wings my beautiful best friend, my sister, my angel. We're Simi and Yemmi and we like the boom. I love you, Simone. Always and forever.".
