Susan, Sara & April,
I met your mom nearly 54 years ago when we worked together at the GE. In fact, I lived in North Adams and we commuted to work together. After working and riding together for just a few weeks, I told your mom one Thursday that I couldn't pick her up the next day because I was getting married on Friday evening. To make a long story short, she and your dad were also getting married on Friday evening--by the same JP, an hour before my husband and I! Our work bond and anniversary bond kept our friendship alive forever. I spoke with her after her brother died and it was as if time stood still and we picked up where we left off. I'll always remember her saying at that time that there were friends who came and went in our lives and there were "forever friends"--she and I are forever friends.
I am so sorry for your loss. She is with your dad now--she missed him every day.
