To my daughter, Kristen, who was my best friend.
You will live through me forever.
What a sad state of affairs, what a sorry world,
That death would come because you’re a pretty girl.
There was no reason for you to die
and now we are left to wonder why.
It’s too bad it takes sorrow and pain
to bring people together again.
But Kristen, you are the one who has united us tonight,
And together we’ll stand to persevere your fight.
Robert Marshall Hall ✵ 1936-1995 (friend)
