Memories & condolences

Abby Markowski (Ferrall)

I have so many vivid memories from my childhood growing up with my best friend Casey.

Two weeks ago I felt this strong urge to try to find him to reconnect again after someone had mentioned nickel arcade games. I remember Janine took us to a penny or nickel arcade once and this sparked excitement to find a way to reach out to him.

I asked my mom if she still had contact with Janine via Facebook, but after she looked around a bit, she shared the news with me. I am heartbroken that I missed the opportunity to reconnect with Casey throughout the years.

Casey and I did everything together growing up. When he moved to Portland I remember missing him so much that I begged and pleaded with my mom to let me visit. My mom put me on my first plane ride by myself to Portland to visit. I think I remember visiting his cool new indoor school and Janine taking us to this toy store (the seemingly odd memories you carry with you along the way). 

I hold some of those memories with Casey very near to my heart and I hope that by sharing them you feel close to him again.
