She taught my son 35 years ago and weve been teacher/ personal friends ever since. Shes my first close friend to go. Most of my friends are older than I am. Thanks for listening.

Sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a friend, but we have to realize how precious the time is and enjoy life. I'm sure you enriched your friend's life by being a good friend.

I truly appreciate your responses. She was an extraordinary human and teacher. Because of dementia near the end I feel shes back to herself now and Im mostly relieved. I hope to live up to the example she set in so many ways.

I'm so sorry for your loss. She does sound extraordinary. You are lucky to have known her. It's the memories that we hold on to and keep us going. May you find comfort in those thoughts and reflections as your mourn.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. The reality of life hits home when our close friends pass. I've lost several close teaching friends and still feel their loss. It only helps me to make each day count and encourages me to use my life to make a difference. Again, sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear this - poem which gave me comfo

I often PM this to people, but am not sure if it still works so I will post instead.



To Those Whom I Love & Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many good years.

I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.

So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away for life goes on.
And if you need me, call and I will come.

Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear,
All my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a 'Welcome Home'.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a friend is so hard to comprehend. We always feel as though we will be there for them and they will be there for us.
Again, my sympathies.
