I ususally try to be upbeat on my blog but I am struggling with news about a dear friend. I was her maid of honor and she was my matron of honor and we have stayed close since the 1960s even though we live far apart. She has gone through several clinical trials for her cancer and the doctors say there really isn't much more they can do. I just ask that you think about her and her family and if you are so inclined, include her in your prayers. This is a picture of us a couple of years ago when we were able to get together at a Delta Phi Epsilon sorority convention held in Philadelphia, PA. She is at one end of the bench and I am at the other. We laughed that our conversations just seemed to take up where we left off the last time we got together...she said in her last letter that she is glad we are sorority sisters. We planned to get together last summer but things didn't click. Now I wish we could have.
