Donna and I had been friends for over fifty years. When I moved to Wurtsboro Hills, Donna was the first person who lived locally, that befriended me. Everyone, besides her was wary of the new kid.
We remained friends al, these years and I last spoke with her the afternoon before her stroke.
I feel like part of my heart is gone, yet watching over mr in Heaven. I have a new Angel now.
