Abraham Lincoln… Read to find out more.

“I have so many fond memories of Jessica (or Chile as I called her), but what I remember most about her was her great sense of humor. She could always make me or anyone around her laugh. She always saw the comedy in every situation and made sure to point it out to you. I loved this about her. In high school we were given the task of writing an essay about a famous person we would want to spend the day with and why. I chose to write my essay about Abraham Lincoln, while the rest of my friends chose celebrities or pop stars. Jessica thought it was hysterical that of all people in the world I chose Abraham Lincoln. (Looking back now, it was kind of silly and completely random.)  From that day on Jessica never let me live my nerdy essay choice down. It became an inside joke. She even brought me Abe Lincoln gifts from the attraction at Disneyland on Main Street: a super sized obnoxious Abe pencil and a mass produced signed replica of the Emancipation Proclamation. I still have both of those items today. I can’t seem to part with them because every few years I find them in a box and I’m reminded of Jess. I’m reminded of how she always made me laugh. I’m reminded of all the inside jokes we had. I’m reminded how much I love her and how much I miss her in my life.”
