    Cari was a friend of mine and I to her in a time where such a thing as a friend was a precious and rare commodity. I met her only a few short years ago and felt like I should have known her longer considering close proximity to mutual friends. Cari confided in me and trusted me and shared vulnerabilities with me seeking light in a dark time. I really proud of her for that and her courage is something to be made note of. She saved my life in a very literal way and my commitment to life and love and never giving up is strengthened and possible because of her and her trust in me. Significant memories cemented forever. My thoughts and prayers to those thinking of her now.
