'Remembering Irene' PTU layout

I lost a dear friend of mine, since elementary school, several years ago. I was getting married to my first husband and was in the process of getting her new address when I found out she was brutly murdered by an ex boyfriend. I was so devestated when I heard of her passing and the circumstances behind it, I almost called off the wedding, saying it was a 'sign' not to get married, boy I should have!! lol.

 She loved Boy George and Princess Diane when we were growing up, I believe she'd be heartbroken to know how both their lives had turned out. I went to my 1st Mardi Gras parade in Metairie, not New Orleans as I usually went and without my parents, with her and her family when I was 16yrs old. I had a grand time and vowed never to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras again, and I haven't!!

She used to always pinch the tip of my nose and say 'beep,beep'. We'd lost touch several times in our adult lives, one day at my work one of my fellow workers came up to me, out of the blue, pinched my nose and said 'beep,beep'. I looked up at her in shock, she said 'The lady at table 2 told me to do that'. I dropped everything, without even looking to see who it was, knowing it was her, and ran to her table in tears. We seen each other a few times after that, she lived not to far from where I worked. Then she moved again without me knowing and I didn't realize that those times would be the last times I'd ever see her.

A group of us have been getting together again since last summer, one person is always missing, though, Irene!

I love you and miss you so much, my friend!
