She should have learned to love cake.
If not true love, why not a reasonable facsimile?
Cheer up, Carol!
It looks as though the friend got her at least 40 years of happy life in the interim. How many friends can make that claim?
Still, profoundly sad. Never to experience love.
It’d be REALLY sad if she passed up a lot of chances in the interim, saying “NO! I must wait ’til my 70th birthday!!”
Moral of the story……there is no such thing as “fate.” Only opportunities you chose to pass up.
