Deb is the first friend who’s passing has hit me hard. It’s taken 40 years for this to happen, and now it finally has. I don’t like it. I mean, I know that “death is a part of life (credit: Forrest Gump).” Doesn’t mean that I have to be ok with it.
A beautiful, awesome, positive person has been taken away from us far too soon, and it’s not fair.
Deb and I reconnected two years ago, after almost 10 years of no contact. But we did and it was as if no time did go by, and that’s the beauty of these types of relationships, and I’m happy that I had that with Deb. Even tho the distance between us was long, we still could always reach out and say “hey.”
As long as I remember Deb, she will always be with me. And whenever I have Filipino food, she will definitely be with me.
