"I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them, and we help them in return. Well, I don't know if I believe that's true, but I know I'm who I am today because I knew you ... Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but because I knew you, I have been changed for good."

"It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part: So much of me is made from what I learned from you. You'll be with me like a hand print on my heart. And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend ... Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but because I knew you, I have been changed for good."

"And just to clear the air, I ask forgiveness for the things I've done you blame me for. But then, I guess we know there's blame to share, and none of it seems to matter anymore."

"I do believe I have been changed for the better, and because I knew you, because I knew you, because I knew you, I have been changed for good."
