Look up an old friend

Postby RED MINI » Tue Feb 09, 2010 12:51 am

or talk to a recent friend and let them know you are thinking about them...I lost my best friend of 50 plus years Saturday night and though my heart is heavy, it is not so because we were out of touch. Larry and I managed to make contact with one another at least 4 times a year for 40 of those years. He lived in Sacramento, CA...I hated losing him, especially because a lot of his ills were related to cigarette smoking, but I find comfort that I had talked with him at Christmas and I know he was at ease with his life. It's something.

I appreciate everyone's comments and some of the calls I've received as they do mean so much to me and that I am still in this constant process of "keeping in touch," but the message to everyone is take the time to connect or reconnect. As sad as I am, I am also so glad we made that time for each other. Do be well, all.

I know how rare a great best friend is. And losing one must be terrible. I heard recently that your "friends are the family you get to choose"... and a best-friend is even more special.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
