I spent the last 4 days of her life with Jan and kept my promise to be there for her husband and son. She was my best friend – something that we were only able to do once we were both adults. I looked to her for a lot of good counsel, moral support and shared humor. We were lucky to have each other and missing her will be a daily thing.
The take away from this is that having a relationship where everything you need to say has been said and you are completely known to one another is really what it’s all about. I have no regrets when it comes to her and that helps. She is at peace and lives on in my heart.
