Hi Butterfly. I am sorry you are dealing with such a loss. Best Friends are hard to find and when you lose one the emptiness is felt pretty deep. I lost my best friend this past July. we have been friends since 6th grade.. She had told me a couple years ago she had early Alzheimer and she took her life this past July. during those couple years we had many deep talks and secrets . I havent really shared much about it here . I just have a sad empty hole and i guess thats all I want to say. But your name grabbed my attention as I just got my very first Tattoo . of a butterfly. it was a promise me and my best friend made when were were kids. If one of us passes the other gets a tattoo. she was butterfly I was a flower. and well I have my butterfly tattoo for a week and a half now. I LOVE it the colors and tear drops and shape of the butterfly all mean something special.
my best friend also had 2 kids one with sever downs syndrome. Please reach out to your friends family and her children... it WILL help both of you. I know it is hard but in the long run it will turn out to be well worth the hard steps you need to make at first. ...the cleaning of closets and cloths and such i think that can wait . hugs from someone not so different from you Butterfly Thanks for sharing it is hard thing to do . sending you prayers and lots of
PEACE

Dear BMW,

i appreciate your sharing your story... so sorry for your loss also.

that is neat about your tattoo, from the mutual promise you guys made - such a special way to remember your friend.

I dont know how honored... she is dead and a butterfly is nothing really and the feeling that she is gone yet I am here makes the unworthy quilt just smoother me .
I actually talked with her oldest and also her younger sister yesterday. her sister was so glad we talked and thanked me said it really helps when i call and check on her and we talk. that made me feel good makes me feel like in talking with my bff kids and her sister ..that it makes my friend happy up in heaven makes me feel close to her in an odd way. so butterfly try to reach out to your friends family they are hurt just as much as you and it is hard for them like it is hard for you... sharing that with them and them with you WILL help. Lots of healing hugs to you Butterfly!!

PEACE
BMW

I'm sorry your friend isn't here anymore. I'm sorry she ever got Alzheimer's and I'm sorry things are the way they are.

I can so relate to you marshmallow. I'll never have another best friend. What we had was special, sisterhood. All of this is making it hard for me to have friends again. All other friendships compared to her & I's seem so ... superficial. And that's depressing.
