It is quite ironic how something so sad as the passing of a dear friend can be so joyous as that of a reunion. A week ago a sweet wonderful lady and friend passed away suddenly. A group of friends that had formed a bond some 40 years ago, gathered together to celebrate her life and to reunite in loving support for her family. As sad as it has been for us all to say good bye for now to this lovely friend, I can't even explain how fun it was to see these dear friends again.
It is amazing how you can go in different directions and years later, it's as if you were never away from each other. What fun reminiscing and playing catch-up with each other's lives. Now with these friendships rekindled, I hope we will not let that much time get between us again. I know that my husband and I will make sure to stop when going in the direction of their homes.
The moral of the story is to not let good friendships slip away. STAY IN TOUCH!
