In the last two years, one cousin and three close friends have died. The first two friends were my best girl friends from childhood. We played together from elementary school age and graduated high school together. The third was one of my college friends.
My cousin, who is younger than I, died in September 2010 from lymphoma. My first girlfriend died in August 2010 from Lou Gehrig’s disease. Her husband, who also graduated from high school with us, preceded her in death in 2009. My second childhood girlfriend, succumbed in June of this year, to cancer. My college friend just died suddenly October 3, 2012.
