3 days ago I lost yet another precious friend. I remember my Mother saying that the worst part about getting older is loosing people you love on a fairly regular basis. And yes, it has become a fairly regular thing.
That doesn’t make it any easier to accept or handle. I just can’t believe that this once vital person who had so much energy and joie de vivre isn’t here in body any more. Oh I know he is in a better place and happy and free. But it happened so suddenly, it was so unexpected!
Here’s the great thing though. My friend whom I have known almost all my life made a huge impact in the world. He had so many friends who truly loved him. He had a quick wit that brought so much laughter to the world. He had a precious family, came from a wonderful family, and left a big hearted imprint on the world.
Bon voyage dear friend. I hope I find you again somewhere and we can share that same mutual caring and that same love of laughter once again. I’ll miss you.
