Condolence & Memory Journal

My Dear best friend - My Angle, how I will miss you. Each day and night our daily 20 + phone calls per day. Laughing and crying about silly things. Our cup of teas and shortbread cookies, Your Small Ice office cream and two Splenda and a plain old fashion. Me and my ginger ale or chardonnay. Our weekend shopping trips just to get out of the house. Lifting my frown upside down and wiping my tears when the days were hard for me past few years. Knowing the entire time it was harder for you to fight each day to overcome this illness. You kept holding on sweetheart, It's time for you to rest darling. How I will miss you so so much, words can not explain dear. I know you are with me, we discussed this and I will remember our talks each day. I'm holding your hand honey, we are not afraid. I love and miss you my best friend. Denise.
