“To Breann Taylor and Kevin Griese for being the besets friends anyone could ever ask for. I will never be able to thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. I’ll miss all of our inside jokes and mall adventures. My favorite day was when we went to Zona Rosa (while it was freezing out) and Kevin decided to get a drink from the vending machine, just for it to be frozen. The look of disappointment on his face was priceless. Also when we were in High School Musical, “hot nuuuttt.” I love you guys so much.”
