Candle

Our flame will burn forever

Posted by Scott Hanks - South elgin, IL   August 07, 2019

I'll always remember your high heels. Your obsession for shopping. The time we went shopping with my sister and you two took forever in each store, looking at every little thing. Remember when we went to the Mary Kay party, and you looked like ghost afterwards with all that horrible makeup she put on! All of these memories are just flooding back, and I honestly can't believe your gone.
