The heartbreaking side of love is lessened when compared to the absence or ignorance of love. I can appreciate the sadness of losing a loved one but my experience is that the memories of the love outweigh the death of the loved one.

Love to all.....Dad

Your post brought a lump to my throat as I thought of the friend I lost a year and a half ago. We thought we'd grow old together but as your Dad says, I'd rather have the memories of the 37 years that we were friends than to have been spared the pain of loss by never knowing her.


My friend Helena and I have been best friends since we were 8 years old. I had just moved to Mechanicsburg and we both were in the same second grade class... we were each other's maid of honor and were married two weeks apart... we even picked out the same dishes... we don't live in each other's pockets either... and have remained best friends since 1984...these types of friendships are rare and beautiful...Someone once told me to always have a friend who knew you when you were young...Helena is that friend and always will be... xo lyns


Your Daddy is so sweet, his comment made my eyes leak.

What a beautifully written post. I believe that every woman should have one enduring friendship that will change her forever. My best friend and I have been together for 21 years. We met in grade nine and have been stuck to each other since. Women need other women.
