Jeannine

We were college roommates so long ago. She was the Maid of Honor at my wedding. She loved cats, crochet and purple. She would forward emails with dancing bunnies exhorting you to pass it on to get a smile. You know the ones I mean. I would reply to her emails with thanks, joking telling her that I didn't mind getting them because then I knew she was alive. Last week the emails stopped.

Go with God, Neener.

  7. Just wanted to offer my sympathy. There is nothing more to say other then how sorry I am about your friend's passing. It's a pain that nothing can make better except time. I hope there are lots of happy dancing bunnies around her.

  27. Paula,
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend- it is hard to lose the ones who have touched our lives- especially the ones who connect us to our past can be particularly hard. May you find comfort in the memories and enjoy thinking about the connections that you had in the last years because of the internet. Personally, I have really appreciated the opportunities that the internet has given me to make new friends but also to reconnect me with my old friends that I had lost touch with- sharing little stories and jokes.I really appreciated your loving tribute to your friend.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Regards,
    Anna
