Goodbye, My Friend

Just a short post to say I recently lost a long-time friend–she was my age and left us much too soon. She passed a few days after losing her teenage son to suicide. Why do these things happen? I haven’t a clue. We all struggle with things, physical and emotional, and sometimes it’s all too much. But she had a big heart that connected to everyone she met. And many, many people will never forget her easy, squeaky laugh. A busy life has a way of making us forget what’s truly important, so I want to honor her and remember as best I can to love, live, and be grateful. Goodbye, my friend, we will miss you. We wish you all the peace and love you deserve.

    So sorry, San. A double loss, as I’m guessing you knew your friend’s son, as well.
    I recently lost a childhood friend, killed in a car accident. As I told my kids, appreciate every day, you never know what will happen.
    Thinking of you.

    Sandy this is a nice tribute. She was a beautiful person, even back when I knew her. I am grateful for friends like you.
