I just found out a friend of mine died 2 years ago.

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    When I lived in Kentucky (I am now in Kansas) I had a friend, most likely my best friend at the time. When I moved back to Kansas we slowly drifted apart. When I went back for a visit I looked her up and we had lunch. Well today I was searching the internet and I found her obituary. I want to send a card or something just to let her family know that this world was a better place with her in it, however, I would be doing it for me. At this point I seriously doubt that the words of a person, 2 years after the fact, would mean anything to them, in fact they would probably only dredge up the heartbreak of losing her.

    So I am telling you, my chicken friends, that I lost a really good friend, and that my world is a little less bright knowing that she isn't in it.

    Thanks for listening.

    I don't know the circumstances of your friend's death, but it might well warm her family members' hearts to know that she is remembered fondly.

    So sorry for your loss [​IMG] I too recently lost a friend that I'd kept in touch with since the age of 13 (a very long time ago) we were almost like sisters as we had none of our own.

    I think that you should send a card. It will bring comfort to you to and I am sure that her parents will appreciate your remembrance.

    You could always send them a card and tell them you just found out about their loss. That happened to us (hubby & me) about a year ago. Found out the mutual friend who introduced us had died of cancer a couple years ago and we hadn't heard anything about it. We hadn't really kept in contact over the years, but we'd run into each other at cattle auctions every once in a while.

    One of my co-workers son died a couple years ago and she always said she loves when people mention him, ask about him or tell her stories of him. I would send a card or letter which ever you feel comfortable with!! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry for your loss, it is always hard to lose someone that has a special place in your heart, no matter how often you talk to them. I agree you should send a card even if it feels like it is just for you. I lost my parents 8 years ago. Last summer I saw a childhood friend of mine that I hadn't seen in 20 years. The first thing she said was I was stunned to hear about your parents and I want you to know I have been thinking about you. Then she shared a few memories she had of my Mom baking the best cookies etc... It warmed my heart, I think you will do the same for them by sending a card. [​IMG]
