Dear Kira, none of us would have ever imagined that day would come so suddenly and that we would be here to remember together the beautiful person you are, your courage and your determination, your enthusiasm and your strength, your grit and your your joy, finally - but not least - your generosity and your altruism. No one would ever think that you would have become an angel before all of us and without warning us with your usual months in advance. We all remember how beautiful your smile was and how reassuring your words were; we all met you as a great friend, a girl without malice and with a great desire to build her future; all in short we know who you were and who you could have become. A little 'we are jealous: who knows where you will be now and who knows who can rejoice with you, look into your eyes and make a loud laugh. We are jealous because we can only look at you in pictures, we can no longer embrace you and all that remains of you is enclosed in our memories. But they, the memories, are the most powerful weapon of all: no one is able to erase them and the stronger ones survive even the fleeing time without thinking of the victims who are reaping. Memories are the bridge between this life and the eternity that awaits us all. These memories are our most precious asset and even if one day we will want to embrace you and we can not do it we will dive right into a memory, we will relive it together and then a little great miracle will be accomplished. Dear Kira, here you will miss everyone, the biggest and the smallest, to the friends of all time and to those known recently. Above all your sincerity, your way of seeing life and of facing the world, your seriousness that became sympathy when necessary; you will miss your being a friend and confidant, your being a precious guardian of so many of our secrets. We will miss you in all the ways in which a person can miss and I imagine that it will be the same for you too. We will pour many tears and surely we will spend days not happy, it is useless to pretend nothing, but then we will look back, we will think of your smile and together or in solitude we will remember your words, we will remember that one day we will be together again and we will return to to smile; in short, we will remember that you have not gone away forever and that this sudden greeting was just a goodbye.
