My Wish For You

July 15, 2014

My wish is that you have friends with whom you share fun and sad times, love and loss, the highs and lows of life. My wish is that at least one person is that close to you.
I am blessed. Including my family I have several friends on whom I can call to share life. All of its highs and lows. On June 25th I lost one of those friends. The Plague did not kill him when he was stricken with it in 2002, it was cancer that took him from us. We stayed in touch by phone and email. We lived separated by so many miles, but we were so close. We said “I love you” to each other, unashamedly. And I spoke to him shortly before his death. But, it wasn’t enough. I still wish for one more time to talk to JT. One more chance to say “I love you.” One more time to talk about stuff. His widow grieves enormously and I can’t find the words to help her. Other than “I love you.”
