I Lost a Great Friend Today

May be this is a bit maudlin, but putting this mini-movie together during the day helped me sort myself out and begin to deal with my grief. Our buddy Fran clung to every day she got and lived the hell out of what days she was granted. She had a great life and the only thing more she would have wanted in her life would have been more of it. I really need to think on that.


  1. I'm sorry, Aunt Claire. She is however with good company.

  2. Yes, that is true. I keep imagining Ma, Grandma and the mothers of friends of mine, all getting together over tea/coffee to fuss about what their crazy daughters are up to. That there could be better things to do 'up there' never enters into the equation. : )
