Lifetime friend
Old 07-13-2020, 01:42 PM

My lifetime friend passed away this morning. We have been friends for almost 60 years. Her passing was totally unexpected. My heart hurts. I lost my mother on March 9th so maybe I'm still not recovered from that and it makes it worse or maybe that has nothing to do with it at all. Tough day today.

Thank you all for the kind thoughts and virtual hugs and condolences. I appreciate them all. Many mentioned that she must be like family and that is true. We considered ourselves sisters. Her dad called me his "other daugher." And, of course, there are SO many memories. Tentalively, funeral is on Saturday. Just going to be a tough few days for me.
