A gratitude letter for my friend Frank…




Today is your birthday and I feel like I am the one who got a gift. Your friendship is so important to me and I am so grateful to have you in my life. Thank you for all you have been and done for me. You are an incredible person with such amazing energy. You are funny, quick, smart, caring, dependable and, above all, a true friend. Thank you for being you. I wish you the happiest of birthdays. You deserve only the best.


Thank you for helping me through one of the hardest times of my life. Thank you for always comforting me when I had no one to talk to. Thank you for taking care of me when I needed surgery back in 2013 and was completely alone. You were more than a friend then. You were a brother. Thank you for always making me laugh even when all I did was cry. No idea how you did that. Thank you for making sure I was always ok when I was down and not coping well with all that was happening with me. You were my rock and no words can describe my gratitude.


Even though we met at a time I was on my lowest point, there were good times, too. Thank you for helping me with my business and for your commitment to making things work. Thanks for sitting with me at Cafe Intermezzo for hours day in and day out to brainstorm, talk, and work. You were the best partner a girl could have asked for. You helped me see things through a different perspective and you never, ever let me put myself down. Thank you for believing in me when I did not believe in myself. Thank you for being so reliable. You were the one person I knew I could always count on. I still can. Thank you for all the times we shared together. Every single moment with you was special and an amazing learning experience.


You are one of the few people I can say I love with all my heart. I am grateful our paths have crossed. I am grateful and honored to call you a friend.


With all my love and gratitude,



Simone Santos
