Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold.
It's value is far greater than
Mountains made of gold.
This face you may have seen before
he was my friend who
left us two years
ago this october.

This was another friend who also
left us too early
On a happier note this threesome
are still around taken prior to leaving
on my trip around australia

My friend Paula we met bowling and are

are still bowling together and are nieghbours

I've kept the best for last

The LADY on the right of the pic below

is my MOTHER
She was truly my friend [My Best Friend]

Even thoughI lost her 40 years ago December 1st
I have found many good friends since but

none like her and I suppose I never will.

  • Welcome back Gwen. Yes that is a very nice post taking roll of your departed friends.
    Sometime or another we generally get to be the older generation, pretty much alone if we are the survivors very much.

  • Hi Gwen,

    Aren't our mom's usually our first best friend? I know mine is and she has been there for me for all these years, and we are still close today. My father I lost 20 odd years ago last month, and I miss him still.
