old friends sit on the park bench like bookends

One of my dearest and bestest friends has died suddenly. We were locker partners in high school. She sat in front of me in homeroom. We were co-captains of the cheerleaders for the wrestling team. And we stayed friends through many years and many changes. None of them obviously our looks. 

"...Time it was, and what a time it was, it was

A time of innocence, a time of confidences

Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph

Preserve your memories; They're all that's left you"
(Bookends,Paul Simon)


  1. Oh, dear. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  2. What a time of grief for you, and the poignant photo and Bookends lyrics make my heart just ache. My sympathy to you.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. Our friends hold our histories with us. May you find small comforts along the way.

  4. I lost a friend very unexpectedly this summer too. Grief is so awful. I hope your journey through it is amply supported by those still with you.

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll be praying for you & her family.

  6. So sorry for the loss of your friend.
