She was the sweetest girl... geez, the road trip to Maryland I took with her and a bunch of others seems like yesterday...
Ciara and her girlfriend at the time helped me through a break-up several years ago and let me stay with them until I found a new apartment. If it wasn't for them, I'd probably have had a far worse time picking up the pieces.
I really hope they get to the bottom of her murder. This world is such a mess.
