    I recently lost my bestfriend and lover and did not even know we were not going to talk again. I was crushed and still am. My friends do not want to hear about it. He has a new girlfriend which is what it is. I still wanto be friends, but he is unwilling. We were neighbors whicmakes this even more difficult.

    Actually his parents were my neighbors and he was their care giver. It was all too perfect that he and I met and became best friends. We walked and talked anf he even got me to ride a bike at 53 years old. I am now in the best physical shape of my mid adult life. What a powerful gift he gave me. One I will always treasure. Always look for the joy and remember the good in the friends you were fortunate to have known.
