Saying Good-Bye To A Friend
Yesterday was an exceptionally beautiful fall day. It was warm and the sun was shining, the leaves on the trees and the ones that had fallen to the ground were a blanket of glowing reds, yellows and oranges. At that moment I wish I was anywhere but where I was…saying good-bye to a dear and cherished friend.
I know that on Fridays I post my usual iPhone Friday instalment but truth be told the last thing I felt like doing was a blog post or processing images. I then remembered how much my dear friend enjoyed looking at my images and how she always had a word of encouragement for me.
There are people who come into our lives who leave an indelible mark and have a significant impact on the people they touch. My dear friend was such a person. She was the type of person who you just felt you could confide in and trust. She always made me laugh, always had a kind word to say about others and was always interested, genuinely interested in what was going on in my life and the goings on of my family. If someone was in need; was ill; was going through any kind of strife she was there for them. She was the epitome of what a wife, mother, daughter and certainly friend is and should be.
Her passing is a profound loss to all that loved and knew her. I know it is for me. There will forever be a hole in my heart.
I miss you Pearl, my dear friend.
