The day starts out on December 28,1990 in the small town of Newburgh, NY. It's 1:28pm and my mother gives birth to a healthy 8lb 14oz baby girl by the name of Charlene Dixon.... as the days of my life go by one by one at the age of 3 we move to the state of Florida for a fresh start but some things don't seem to work out so my parents move back to the state of New York and things still don't seem to be working out all that well so by the time I hit age 5 we finally made one last trip to the state of North Carolina where I have been residing for 18 years. I couldn't ask for a better place to live for many reasons, I have the most amazing friends in the world and family as well, I couldn't ask for better people in my life....although I enjoy it very much here I have also had some pretty bad times in my life, when I was in the 10th grade of high school at Southern Lee in Sanford NC I lost a very dear friend to me by the name of Dana Shorb when I heard the news I just couldn't believe what I was hearing she was such a sweet person to everyone and quite frankly couldn't understand why something like this had happened but as the days went on we remembered here not by what she had become but by who she was. 2 years have gone by and it's the year 2009, 20 days before my senior year of high school starts and I have lost another friend, one that I would call my brother and best friend, his name was Daniel Victor "Gordy" Romero and he was absolutely the sweetest person I have ever known and yet again I couldn't understand why this had happened but after loosing Daniel I learned everything happens for a reason and I know that he is looking down on me everyday waiting for the day we meet again, I think about Daniel all the time and wonder what life would be like if he were still alive and how close of friends we would have become if this tragedy had never happened. As my final year in school goes by it has become 8 months before graduation and I have lost someone very dear to me that I hold a special place in my heart by the name of Virginia Lynn Dixon, she was my aunt, she was my heart and she was my soul, now I had lost people in my life before but it had never felt like this, I would cry for so many days and even on the way back to New York for her funeral, seeing all the family members at her funeral had made me realize that life is not something you waste it is something you cherish forever, you never know when something like this is going to happen to you and quite frankly it is a very scary thing to think about but now I come to an end of my store and it's March of 2013, I never thougth that it would be all these years since I lost these very dear people to me but one thing is that I will never forget them no matter how hard I try and I don't want to forget them, I want to remember them for who they were to me and that they will always hold a dear place in my heart :) So as I come to the final thoughts in my head I have to say that I have lived a great life till this very day and I have learned many life lessons over the years and that you lose people and you gain people but everything happens for a reason and for those of you that I have lost over the years I have to say I love you guys and hope to see you soon
