I found out overnight that one of my bridesmaids, who remained a close friend for years, but who was also very troubled died in August of last year. I loved her dearly although we had troubles that we could not surmount in our time. This is a difficult thing to grasp–that although we made a mutual decision to not be in contact, she is truly gone from this world. I don’t know how she died. We had not been in contact since my daughter was little. So many distressing thoughts come to mind but ultimately the fact is that I loved her fiercely, and I believe she loved me too.
In respect of her memory I wish her peace and comfort to her loved ones.
