We may have gone our own separate ways over the years. Maybe we no longer keep in direct contact. But where does the strength come from to continue on with one’s own life, knowing that the life of someone we love, who was there for us in our own time of need, will no longer be there to turn to?
I guess the best thing we can do is to remember the good times we had together. The joy that we shared in life. The friends that we’ve made together over the years, and the people we’ve touched all over the world. There were there bad days, for sure. Nothing is perfect, afterall. But we must look to the good things of this friend, and not just dwell on the bad. A friend… not just of mine, but a friend to many.
I’m sorry… I… I know it sounds like I’m talking as if my friend has already passed. I know that can be insensitive to some people. This is a hard day for me, having heard the news. I’m sure some of you may feel the same way that I do.
Please join me in a moment of silence. :sad;
