    I loved our regular Sunday coffee dates. I loved our daily check in texts. I loved having that one person with whom I can share EVERYTHING without being judged. I loved all the secrets that only two friends of 49 years keep between themselves. I even loved how you made fun of how I cry at the drop of a hat or the infamous, “I don’t want to.” But most of all, I loved YOU. I’ll miss you so much, my friend, but will always treasure the memories we’ve made together…some hilarious, some painful, but all are the glue of a great friendship.
