We had some sad news yesterday. My Mothers best friend, soulmate of 73 years, Ms. Joan died. I know my Mother is heartbroken. They spoke on the phone everyday. They could tell each other everything. Friendships like that are precious and rare. Thank you for being such a kind, good, supportive, understanding friend to my Mother Ms. Joan. Love you.
