Sunday Salon, Losing a Friend

Life and death are not far apart, and yesterday my very close friend, lost her husband in what can only be described as too sudden, too young and too unexpected. I spent the day at the hospital with her, until we were told he did not survive. This man was always a special person who watched over me during the depths of my sorrow and bad luck. He was one gentleman of class who taught me to fight the battle. I just wish he had won his. My dear friend, you will be missed.

Please read my posts this week of book reviews, as I will not be able to focus on anything else today. Remember....life is precious and can be gone in a moments time.

For my friend:
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

I'm so very sorry to hear of your friend's passing. I'll be keeping you and his family in my prayers.

The Maya Angelou quotation is a fitting tribute.

*hugs*

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and words. It helps having you as friends. Death is never easy, but this happened so fast, I still can't believe it.
