I returned safely from my trip to Dallas to visit old friends, I had a wonderful visit with a high school friend , we talked and talked about old times and what had happened in our lives since we saw each other last .We went to visit another friend from our youth , this woman and I grew up in the same neighborhood , we met when we were nine.
This friend( Marilyn ) was fighting cancer. she was on a heavy dose of pain medication while we were there. We sat with her and her sister and daughters and talked about old times and the fun we had as kids. I wasn't sure how much she heard or understood. But it was good to be with her for one last time. I called to check how she was doing the next day, and her sister said that later the night before Marilyn said real plain " I've known Sharon for a reealllly long time ." So I feel like now she knew we were there and heard us talking.
