This world is a lonelier place, as well as my heart, since my “Bestest
Friend in the Whole Wide World “ Rissy (Chrissy) Molnar left us to go be with her Beloved MaMa (Nanny) in Heaven.
I was honored to be beside Chrissy during her last days and so grateful that her family always included me in their lives. I’ve always felt loved and welcomed whenever I was with them. Little did Dennis know that when he and Chrissy married, PJ and I were part of that package deal.
Chrissy and I met almost 34 years ago, and we’ve been through the best of times and the worst of times. Even the worst times were good with my funny, giving, loving, opinionated, best dancer, selfless, big hearted Co-hort in crime, my shopping buddy and my go out to eat partner that I was blessed to call my friend and my Sister.
We had some lean days and some great days. We happily worked two full time jobs and a part time job at the same time to support our sons so they didn’t have to do without and later be able to afford gifts for our grandchildren.
Whenever we barely had enough to eat, we combined our food and made it last until our next paycheck. If one of us didn’t have a working car the other did, which meant we both had a car.
We didn’t need money to have fun, we had fun just being together with our families and friends.
If we were having a bad day, all we had to do was call each other and we would be laughing uncontrollably in minutes.
On my way home tonight I thought, oh I need to text Chrissy, and then I remembered, you weren’t here.
Chrissy, my life won’t be the same now that you are gone. However, Knowing you, you will probably haunt me while you and Nanny are laughing hysterically at my expense. I’ll take it, knowing it’s you and Nanny.
I am already missing you so much my friend.
You may not be here on earth but our friendship and love will last an eternity.
Always Your Friend and Sister ,
All My Love, Poco
PS (Please give Nanny a BIG hug and kiss from CoCo.)
