I only got to be around you for a short period of time, but Liberty you made a very large impact on me, so much that I still think about you from time to time like right now. I wish I could've said goodbye, wish I could've told you, that I thought you were an amazing and wonderful person. I know that you no longer have pain or heartache just joy and happiness. I am thankful for you.
I was a freind of Liberty's even though we never actually met, After reading all the memories i wanted to add my own, I met Libby on a penpal website a good while ago, we used to mail each other very often at one time, I cannot belive what an impact she had on my life. We used to talk about everything, she was one of those rare people who it didnt matter what you talk to her about she could make you smile, She still comes into my thoughts from time to time, and that is how i happened on this memorial website, when i found out she had passed on i had in fact sent her an email, and i had a friend of hers reply to me telling me the news, and i was in shock, i felt as though a very great light had dimmed in my life, the world seemed just that little bit darker that day, and to say i never had the very great privilage of meeting her its a fitting tribute to how she affected me in life, all this time later i still have her in my thoughts and i know that no matter how cloudy it is where i am i know she is up there watching over those she knew, I miss talking about anything/everything with you Libby, you will NEVER be forgotten in my lifetime, you have a very special place in my heart and that is where i will carry the time we spent writing each other, it meant more to me than you can know, i miss you more than you can know and ill remember you for as long as you can know
My memories with my friend could go on for pages. We met in high school choir and began writing each other silly notes filled with high school drama and future dreams and wishes. Before I knew it we can become good friends and she invited me to her family birthday party and we drove around her grandmother's complex parking lot because she had just gotten her permit and couldn't drive on real streets without an adult...but believe me, she made sure she got to drive party decorations from her grandmother's house to the clubhouse any chance she got. From then on we just hit it off and became best friends in high school. We laughed, cried, hugged, dreamed, day-dreamed, planned, schemed with each other and I am absolutely sure I wouldn't have made it through those awkward years in my life without her. I spent nearly every day at her house in those years...we even walked in the snow when it was up to our hips due to the huge snow storm to meet with each other to celebrate that school had been canceled. And the boys, OH THE BOYS! Liberty and I spent countless hours over boys at our high school. We were always trying to work on each other's behalf...trying endlessly to make a match that was sure to sweep us off our feet (thinking back I see how niave we were...a subject we often had laughs over later in life). I was her "knight in shining addidases" and she was my sunshine bear. Oh how I miss those days! I never knew they would slip by so quickly and I would be wishing that I had written down every last silly thing we had done together.
As the years went on, we went to different colleges but always kept in touch. Our relationship had changed and so had our personalities. At times it was rough trying to feel each other out after being apart for so long (we weren't able to finish each other's sentences or read each other's thoughts so well). But our core selves remained the same and we still found ways to connect in laughs, cries, and hugs all over again. Liberty Lynn Candelaria knew how to speak to my soul and at times when I had given up on life and "wanted my money back" (as we always said), she was there with a "cheer up, Charlie" and a "well, the good news is...".
Liberty, I miss you terribly and tears are welling up in my eyes this very moment at the thought that it may be years and years until we are reunited. I'm not sure that I will ever find a friend so kindred, so caring, and so genuine. You are ALWAYS in my heart, dearest friend...always!
Though I never thought I could love Lib more than I had when she died, I find myself loving her and cherishing her friendship more and more everyday. I miss her, and wish she were still here. But I am conforted by the fact that she is in a better place. She is happier now than she ever was, and that makes me eternally happy.
I am LIberty's mother and I cannot describe the misery I feel at the lost of a beautiful daughter and my best friend. I will never ever be the same and I am still in disbelief of her passing. Thank you for all your kind words and never forget her please. It seems that things have settled and I am afraid that in time she will be forgotten...not by me or her 3 siblings but by her friends and what Liberty truly represented. Liberty stood for unconditional love, unconditional friendship to all and God. If you would like to contact me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org; I cannot make it without the support of all that love Liberty! God bless and remember life can be short.
I just found out today about Liberty's passing. I was wondering why she wasn't returning my calls and I figured she was just really busy.
Liberty was an amazing, charismatic, and gorgeous young lady. I do and will miss her a lot. She was so inspiring and uplifting to those around her, she was political and voiced her thoughts while not bashing others for their thoughts even though they might have been different from hers. She and I always talked about finding our Mr. Darcys. On her 22nd Birthday, Liberty, her friends, and I did a scavenger hunt of random items and then went for a drink at a local bar. I will remember that time forever.
Liberty was a great friend and a God-loving person. She impacted people and got them to think about what was important in life. She made a difference.
I choose the icon with the stars because she will always be a star in my mind. Shining bright for others to see and respond to.
Liberty, I love you and I wish I could have told you that more often.
I hope God is looking after you know and that he takes good care of you.
Today I'm really missing you. I love you Liberty.
