Donna

Best friend from high school died last night. Guess she will not make it to the 30 year reunion. Makes me feel extremely mortal and old. How have 30+ years gone so fast?

Wasted a lot of time with her over the years. The past 15 years have been sporadic in contact. That really doesn't seem to matter. She is in my heart as a 17 year old hellion. Everyone else can remember her as a mom, grandmom, daughter, sister. She was my running buddy. Going out and getting drunk as possible without puking. Perhaps with her passing, does that mean no one is there to remember me as a 17 year old hellion? Is that part my past erased since there is no one but me to recall it?
