against demons

a message from laini's parents

If you could please pass along to all those who were special to Laini how much Manuel and I have been touched by so many of her friends who continue to contact us and to remember her. We were in awe at how many cards we received on her birthday, and now again today, how many beautiful thoughts are coming our way. All have shared special moments they had with Laini, have expressed their joy in knowing her, and their sorrow as they miss her. It's very difficult for me to reply to each of you, but please know that we love hearing from you. Each of you had a part in making Laini the person she was - hmmm, do I thank you for that or smack you upside the head?! She relished your friendship and the time she got to be with each of you.

november 12th marked one year since laini passed on. i sent yellow roses to her parents symbolizing our long friendship. i will get to see them over my thanksgiving trip. i told them i would be their lala for the day. i always think about laini a lot, but this past week was pretty brutal. i stayed in and watched america's next top model and stylista that night. i figured that was what laini would have done. i really think she would have dug the drama in stylista. when i watch stuff like that i feel like she's there with me. there are so many times i have started typing out an email or a text message to her only to remember the harsh truth. when i speak to others who were close to her, they have been doing the same thing. i don't think that will ever stop. she meant so much to so many.

me, laini & evan mellosonic
