I have so many wonderful happy memories of Rita, Janet and myself…so many laughs…I lost touch with Rita about a yr ago. She said she was moving and I didn’t get her new number…the last time I talked to her she told me she loved me and missed me…I said I loved and missed her too…who wouldn’t miss her. Right…she had such a good sense of humour…even though we went years without talking that didn’t change the friendship we had…my dear friend this is gonna be the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long time…I never lost a childhood, ex-sister-in-law best friend before…how do I say goodbye…you were still so young…maybe I should have drug you away from all those ppl..to come live with us…maybe you would have beat it… this sucks my friend…but I am letting you go now but I will always cherish the times we spent together…crossroads were never the same once we left in our younger days…..RIP MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND…I know your at peace because you have that little smirk on your beautiful face….thank you for keeping me part of your family when I divorced your brother….I love you…RIP :purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart:
