A gratitude letter for my friend Alessandra…


Thank you for being in my life for almost 30 years! From the day we met in high school, we never lost touch. We met at Elefante Branco in Brasilia and it was love at first sight. We clicked and we were always together. We were the best of friends and we could count on each other for everything. It was always amazing being with you. I loved when you would go to my house to spend the night and we would talk the night away. We went through our teenage years together and, to this day, we are a team. We had so much fun together. We also went through all the teenage ups and downs together.

Thank you for being this beautiful person inside and out. Thank you for being by my side despite the distance. Above all, thank you for helping me when I hit rock bottom. Gosh, you went out of your way to help me and you literally helped scoop me up from the bottom. Not only did you help me financially but you helped me with your kindness, generosity and friendship. I remember when I went to Brazil in 2014 and you had just had baby Luiza. Even though you had just had a baby, you were determined to help me and I cannot thank you enough for that. No words could possiby explain how much I love and appreciate you.

I know we are away from each other but I also know the love we have for each other is real and does not know borders. You are my amazing friend and I want you to know I do anything for you. My deepest gratitude for everything you mean to me. Thirty years of friendship is not thirty days. OMG, can you believe we have known each other this long? I love you and I will always be here for you. Thank you for being there for me. You are that one friend for good and bad times, in sickness and in health. Forever. Te amo amiga!

With all my love and gratitude,



Simone Santos
