audrey garant. when i first met you, you already felt like family to me. you have seen me in bad circumstances and you never judged me or strayed away from me. instead you always were a devoted friend and confidant. you even were my sugar mama when i was broke and you never expected anything in return! true friendship is rare and ours is set in stone. Je t'aime ma noire!

 

Dakota. My sister from another mother. you taught me to stand up for myself the new york way! you also taught me to never settle for less than i deserve. thank you for believing in me when i didn't believe in myself. we were meant to meet again in this life because our souls have been acquainted for milleniums. no matter what life throws at us we will always have eachother. that's our true riches.
