Who can forget this awesome chick? She was an amazing support from the beginning and was always there for us when we needed her. Back in SH for the 2nd time, just for the Summer, we created some great memories with her. img=http://rs473.pbsrc.com/albums/rr97/fitzy90_2008/Mobile%20Uploads/10489976_10204407003360668_8227831646345439222_n.jpg~320x480 img=http://rs473.pbsrc.com/albums/rr97/fitzy90_2008/Mobile%20Uploads/10524354_10103528614804466_3266898267782666941_n.jpg~320x480 img=http://rs473.pbsrc.com/albums/rr97/fitzy90_2008/Mobile%20Uploads/10439484_10203863222013705_6226842680671955742_n.jpg~320x480 img=http://rs473.pbsrc.com/albums/rr97/fitzy90_2008/Mobile%20Upload... read more
