A nice memory

"Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."

This is my friend Sharon. She has been on my mind a lot lately. Sharon passed away about 8 years ago. I wasn't with her in the end. I have always regretted that, but there were things going on in my life at the time that pevented it. I know some people will disagree with me, but I know she understood why.
Sharon and I were very close. We shared a lot with each other. We even had some secrets that have never been revealed. They never will be. When Sharon passed she was cremated. Her ashes were released several years later after her husband re-married. I wasn't invited to attend that day, but I was there in spirit. From what I was told it was a very beautiful ceremony and for that I do thank her family.
Even though there are differences now that prevent me from being close to the family. Sharon will always have a very special part in my life. She was one of a kind and no one can replace her.
May she find peace in the after life.

Dear Pat:

That was a beautiful tribute and from the things I've been told about Sharon, she would of understood. It's hard to lose someone close to you.

I talked to Bruce and he said to thank you. Great Pictures too.

Thank you Nancy
I wasn't sure if Bruce had those pictures or not so I thought he might enjoy seeing them. Even though you and I have our differences I know Bruce needs someone in his life just the same as John does. Maybe we can all put this behind us and move forward. I think it would make Sharon sad to see how things are now.

A very nice tribute to your friend. From what I've heard about her she seemed to have been a very special person. I hope we all can put all of this behind us and move forward with life. I can think of several people that left there footprints in my heart that would not have been happy with me at different points in time lately.

Memories are so comforting and I think your friend would understand anything, because she WAS your friend!
