    As my grandmother often told me, “no matter if you’re young or old, when the good lord says it’s time to go, it’s time go.”

    My goodness, that makes me uncomfortable. The problem with being my age is that you have lots of folks that you wish you’d kept in touch with…

    So much easier to find those friends and keep in touch on Facebook and other social networks these days. But still so sad and I know the feeling to lose those old friends who died when you were not looking.

    Beautiful, sad, timely, poignant. Reminds me of the song “The Cat’s in the Cradle” which is about fathers and sons. Bravo, and thanks for the wake up call …. (Isn’t it odd that sometimes the deepest friendships get the least attention?)

    Life happens……lost too many friends to remember them all.
    But in the end…..together will be all.
    Just not yet.

    This one hurt. I had a best friend, one so close I called him brother. Alzheimers took him away; it took his memories. It would have been kinder if it had taken his life…

    You have your preferences, I have mine. That’s how I was raised. As for you, I don’t who (or what) raised you.
