|Pretty purple cross shell|
found on Coogee Beach
Within the past ten days, I lost two more wonderful friends. Untimely early in their lives, and in mine. I believe I am for the better from knowing them. Melinda taught me to have fun - anytime, anyplace, and to just go for it. Gwen was an amazing soul - our friendship spanned almost 30 years. Yet when we would reconnect, she remembered the exact stopping point and we continued on from there. I do not think she ever met anyone who not love her immediately. These were the people you meet and become life-long friends instantaneously.
To them and all my other kindred-spirited friends who have departed, I miss you and will always treasure our memories together.
