What a shame that I lost this dear friend without knowing. It is my fault that we had not stayed in touch. He called me every evening because he was lonesome. I had a two year old grand daughter that I was raising and I didn’t have time for those nightly chats. When I changed my phone number, I failed to tell him. I kept thinking that I would but time got by me.
Now, I am filled with deep sorrow because I could have taken the time but I didn’t.
Do not do that to the people you love. You may never get a chance to say goodbye. I might not have been able to say good-bye no matter as I do not know what happened.
He will not miss me but I sure will miss him. He and I had been friends since high school. We have a reunion coming up this month and it will be so sad for me, that he will not be there.
Buck baby, I loved you so much. You brought a lot of joy into my life with your jokes and kidding. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories.
