The thing that sticks out the strongest in my mind about Chels is her supportiveness. You throw a party, she will do everything she can to be there, even if for only a few minutes. She also always makes sure you are included in get-together invitations, activities, sporting events, etc. I think that support is her way of letting me know she loves me. All of the things she has helped me with over the past four years have not been because she felt obligated, but have been because she loves me and wants to be there for me.
Chelsey doesn't need to see you every day to pick up a conversation you had two months ago. Each day she doesn't see you does not affect her opinion of you, but each day she does see you makes her love you more and more. And she makes me laugh. Hard. Three cheers for friends with a "scandalous" sense of humor.
She and I have helped each other through a lot of challenges, the most fun of the challenges would be Ultimate Frisbee games, of course! I cannot count the amount of frisbee games we have played, nights we have stayed up talking past 2am, good food we have shared, pool-side chats, laughter, movie nights, the list goes on and on. Whenever I have needed help with anything musical, she's always one of the first to offer up her skills and I could not be more grateful. We spent a lot of time together during our stake musical a few years ago and man can that girl dance! You can see the passion in her come alive if you give her a beat and let her fly.
The less-fun of our challenges may have broken better people, but not us.
Chelsey, I love you so very much!
