Rest In Peace Cherry<3

I met Cherry online back when I was 13 years old. Yes, we never actually met but we would talk ALL THE TIME sometimes with microphones and webcams. Cherry went through a very difficult childhood. She was molested for several years by her step father. One day, her sister walked in on her being molested and her sister ended up being brutally raped and murdered right in front of Cherry. Cherry grew up hating herself and developed anorexia and self harmed. She survived many suicide attempts, but her anorexia constantly haunted her. One day I came online to find out from one of our close friends (she knew Cherry in person) that Cherry's anorexia caused her heart to give out during gym class. She was revived and taken to the hospital. She was improving and I was able to talk to her. She decided to forgive her step father for everything that he had done to her. She said she would never get well unless she could move past everything. I was so happy and proud, she was finally going to get better. Two days later I came back online to see that all of the friends that me and Cherry had in common put their statuses as RIP Cherry. The damage that the anorexia had caused was too extensive and she died. It came as such a shock to me because she was going to get better. Cherry survived everything. That's who she was, a survivor. She was my best friend. She was there for me through my father's alcoholic rages, being bullied at school, my grandparent's being in a traumatic car accident, she was there for me. She was my support. I was severely anti-social and she was there for me. Honestly, she is the reason that I am here today. Nobody understands my grief over her loss because I never "knew" her, but I feel like I knew her better than I knew anyone else.
Cherry, I miss you so ******* much. You didn't deserve to die the way you did. I think about you every day. You will never EVER be forgotten. I love you<33

I'm sorry for Cherry. She was a good person. Never forget about her, and never give up on yourself - that's not what Cherry would want you to do.
