Well, it’s not ‘List it Tuesday' any more, it actually Wednesday now ... but the need has arisen for another list ... there’s been another passing.
My junior high and high school friend has passed ... too young, too soon...drawn her last breath ... Some of us knew it was coming, but it’s still hard to hear that the final breath has been drawn.. It’s so final ... no chance to say what you wanted or forgot to or even needed to say ... no do-overs... too late.
Those of us that knew it was coming have been helping each other, knowing the end was drawing near... It’s still hard tho... and how ironic that this week is the anniversary of my own moms passing... so, every year at the same time, I will reflect on memories of my mom, her sister and now my friend... sigh...
I’ll think of my friend often. What a great gal.. Here are 5 things I’ll always remember about her:
She had ...
. . . an infectious laugh that just drew you in
. . . a bright smile that shined like a bright beacon of light
. . . a mischievous twinkle in her eye that made you giggle
. . . a spirit and capacity for love and compassion that paled to others
. . . and a zest for life that could not be attained by anyone else
Good night and rest in peace sweetie...we’ll talk about you, laugh and share crazy memories of things that teenagers did when they thought they wouldn’t get caught or just didn’t know any better.... I’ll think of you and love you always. . .
