To my friend who, when I told her Gary died, her first response was "How are you doing?" After a pause while I tried to think what to say, she said "no, no. I mean are you okay financially? Be honest. I'll write you a check."
To my friend who, as soon as she found out that Gary died and I was alone, dropped everything and drove 6 hours to be with me.
To my friends who made the amazing commitment to take my dogs and cat if anything should happen to me now that Gary is not here.
To Gary's son who took care of some chores for me before returning to Colorado and has stayed in touch to offer support.
To my friend who has insisted on a daily check in from me - just to make sure I'm okay.
To my friends who invited me for Thanksgiving and Christmas so I would not be alone.
To my friends who continue to check in with me via Facebook, email and phone.
To my friends who generously and repeatedly ask me: what can I do?
I'm very sorry it has taken me so long to express my gratitude. Please don't take it as a sign that I don't appreciate you.
Thank you. I am truly blessed to call you my friends.
