Life just gets harder, another friend of more than forty years has left us. Marlena, today I am the one person that understands your loss. All we can do is try to make sense out
of what is left of our lives. The hard part comes when we spend the days at home alone with nothing but memories. Please know others are feeling your loss and will be thinking of you.
