It is difficult to put into words what I have felt since hearing the news on Saturday morning. The only word that I have been able to use is “Odd”. I can only speculate as to why I feel this way. I’ve asked myself, “Is it because we are the same age?” It can’t be that, because I have had other friends who have ascended to the next level of their infinite journey that were also our same age. You see, this is so much different because we are and will always share a special kind of friendship. There are certain people who are brought into our lives for a reason. They become an important part of all that we are. They are always here for us as we are there for them. We never hold back our thoughts from one another and speak freely on all topics. When we are on the wrong path they will tell us even if it means they may lose our friendship forever. They know our strengths and our weaknesses, but love and accept us all the same. As our paths fork off in different directions and the times we share grow fewer and far between an intimate connections still exists between us. Then the universe provides us with the wonderful opportunities to come together and laugh, cry and share the past and present with each other. Whether it be days, weeks, months or years time seems to stand still on the day we come together in the joy of our infinite friendship. It always feels as if we are just picking things up from yesterday. These are our soul mates whom have been given to us by the All and the One. This is the kind of friendship we shared. Our families were our families and our homes were our homes. Even today I can feel his presence. All I need to do is think back to those special moments we shared as friends and there I Am.
