11-18-1999

That day will forever be engraved in my brain. 9 years ago today I lost my best friend. Miranda Denise Adams died early that morning in the tragic Aggie bonfire collapse. I miss her dearly, oh how many fun, sweet, sad, loving, silly, memorable times we had together. We even lip synced (yes, to NKOTB!!) back in 4th grade (part of our PE class, weird, I know). We were always in band together, and study partners. And when we went off to college, she to TAMU and me to BU, we seemed to get closer with the miles between us. I spent some FUN times visiting her and our other best friend Kate (they were roomies freshman year) at TAMU freshman year.

We used to go to College Station every year and visit with her family on the site where bonfire fell at 2:42 am. We went to the memorial dedication when it was 5 years past. We haven't been the past few years because of Cara and work schedules, but we're already planning on being there next year for the 10 year anniversary. Her family is part of my family. I know all her aunts/uncles/cousins. I love her parents, 2 brothers, their wife/fiance and kids. Her parents, as tired as they were today from being up in the middle of the night, and just the emotional drain they must go through this day every year, came by my parents house tonight as soon as they got home to Santa Fe to come meet Micah. It was so sweet. They can't believe I have 2 kids (either can I!), and oh how I wish we could have gotten married together and had kids together. God is good, I know that and I praise Him daily. I know He takes all of us in His timing for us, but oh how we miss the people He takes. Lord, today I just pray peace over her family and all that loved our sweet Dada. We miss you girl!

I thought about you and Miranda a lot today. It is my parent's anniversary so I won't forget the bonfire collapse either. Hugs to you Misty!

Awwww, Misty that was so terrible. I still think about Miranda sometimes (EVERY time I hear "Cowboy Take Me Away" by the Dixie Chicks). I'll keep all you guys in my thoughts.
