An old friend died this morning. She was a college friend of my parents and has known me since birth. I will miss her quite terribly.

She and I took a road trip in September. She had lost thirty pounds, not on purpose. I thought I had better do the road trip while we could. We went from Michigan to visit five households of old friends in Wisconsin. I lived with her and her family for a year during college in Madison, Wisconsin in the early 1980s. She is a beloved mentor.

She also introduced me to all sorts of groups. She has an amazing record collection.

I went with her to see Warren Zevon in Madison.

The painting is my photograph of one of her oil paintings. It is about 3 by 5 feet and gorgeous.

Dona nobis pacem and much love.

    Sorry for your loss. You have many precious memories of shared moments with your friend and mentor; that is so special.

  5. I’m sorry about your friend. Death is hard (for those of us left), even when the dying person is ready. Thanks for the mid-morning music. Martha and the Vandellas always bring a smile to my face – especially Dancing in the Street.

    Sorry for your loss. Friends like that are hard to find and harder to lose; they can’t be replaced.
