How do I begin to tell our story? All I know is we have weathered all kinds of storms together! We never missed a beat! We laughed, we cried and we shared a lot of precious moments. I watched your kids grow and you watched mine. We shared our feelings and our thoughts. We talked on the phone until wee hours of the morning. We were friends for 35 years so there isn't enough words to describe what you mean to me! Fly high my friend!

Oh, so many memories, so many things we did together. There was the time we were going to bingo and a train was coming, we were with my mother in law. Mae was driving. I said Mae you better stop, she said oh no we are going to be late for bingo. Well we didn’t get hit but it was close. I guess I could write all day, She was only 14 when we meet., we pretty much watched each other grow up. I have many stories, she had a big heart and would do anything she could for anyone.
