It was so very good to be together again. With a group like this, we pick up where we left off...are we 13 again, 21? No more than thirty for sure. This time the conversation was serious. Sue was here cleaning out her parent's home. Her dear Mom is failing, and the reality of us having lost our parents was a sad and hard situation we have all had to experience. So we talked, and remembered, supported and loved each other.
I always feel like Bigfoot with these tiny friends! I've know Dot, Sue S. and Sue K. since 1968. They have been friends since first grade, I was a newcomer in 8th grade when Sue K. invited me to a Halloween party.
The rest they say is history. A special friend, who has known me, laughed with me, been there through it all, she is irreplaceable. I was there when she met Laury, she was there when I met my guy. We danced together, sang together...spent evenings in her bedroom talking, talking, then sending letters and surveys, which were questions we didn't get to in our talks. Time has not changed much between us, except the fact that she is clear across the country now. A friendship I cherish. Sue S. is a grandma 3 times! Sue and Ron have been together since 1969. Ron just lost his dear Mom. Ron's Mom was our Mom too. She called us all her kids to the end, even though most of those kids are pushing 60 this year. Dot and Kev have been together a very long time too. We all have been so fortunate to have married very young but chosen wisely.
We had some dessert and all too soon it was time to say goodnight. Until we meet again dear friends, Love Happiness and Sunshine Always...
Your friend forever,
