A gratitude letter for my dear friend Giovani….

Dear Giovani,

What a gift you have been in my life! Thank you for becoming almost family to me. We met right after I had a car accident and was really hurt. The impact from someone who hit me while I was stopped at a traffic light hurt my neck all the way to my lower back. I could not walk. Then, our dear friend Patu introduced me to you and my life changed. You took care of me and healed me. I cannot put into words how important that was. Thank you for taking care of me and for becoming one of my closest friends and confidants.

Aside from healing me, you healed my soul with your wisdom, patience, love and friendship. We spent so much time together after my accident that pretty soon we became inseparable. Thank you for the long talks, the lessons on how to care for myself and the wisdom you passed on from having gone through life. Thank you for listening to me, for checking on me and for sending me good energy regardless of where you are. We developed this amazing bond that, even though we are not together, we can sense when one needs love and attention. You are my father, my brother, my friend, my everything.

There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how wonderful you are. I have never met anyone who has cared so much about helping people. You go out of your way to make people feel special and to heal them from their pain. Your healing powers come from your loving heart and loving soul. You are an angel in my life and I could not be more grateful.

Thank you for being that friend who talks about everything and who listens with attention. Thank you for spreading so much love wherever you go. I hope our friendship keeps on growing and that we have many more happy moments with our families and friends. I love you!

With all my love and gratitude,



Simone Santos
