I heard today that a friend passed away recently. She wasn’t a close friend but we shared some happy and not so happy memories. Overall we had a good laugh.
What hit me most when I heard the news was that she was so young. Well maybe not young but certainly younger than me which is always something that gets to me.
“Had she been ill?” I asked as I’d not seen her for a while. And that’s when the hammer blow hit. “Complications brought on by her alcoholism.” That hit me hard for many reasons as you can guess.
I never knew.
It’s hard to write how I feel so I’m just going to leave this as it is.
