  1. Fill,
    I wish I had the chance to say goodbye.
    It had been a while, I hadn’t seen you.
    I was glad to hear you were in a happy time in your life.
    The roadtrip to the concert was something we all will never forget!
    I know I will never forget all the fun times we all had in school, and afterwards too.
    Till we meet again my friend.
