Default My friend Michael died last night

I guess it is like Fern said,if you live long enough you will go to a lot of funerals.
Mike and his wife never cruised and therefore would never post on a cruise board.However,he had more friends than anyone I have ever known.He had friends in all walks of life ,politicians,show business,police officers,lawyers and just regular folk.
I met him 49 years ago but became his friend 34 years ago.Today I have been getting calls from a lot of friends asking if I am going to the funeral tomorrow.
Two hours ago I got a call from a guy who I lost touch with who apologized for not calling me. We spoke for an hour and hopefully we will resume our friendship.
I am writing this because life is so short and friendship is so important.
Treasure your friendships.

Sorry for your loss Len. You are right about friendships being so valuable. It's been my friends, both near and far, live and online, who have been helping me get through these difficult days watching my husband slowly die. Thank goodness for friends.
