Receiving my friend's voice message

Yesterday afternoon, I received a text message from my dear friend's hubby through my friend's cell phone. He had texted me a voice message from my friend that was played at her funeral service. He thought that I'd like to have it to remember her.

It was such a nice gesture. I texted him back and thanked him. I was grateful to have been able to attend her funeral from afar. Hearing her voice again was and still is comforting.

I sent him my love and thoughts to him and his daughter. He appreciated it.

It's hard to believe that it has been a week since I got the news about my friend's passing. Although I am healing, it will definitely take a while to get back to my regular self.

    1. Thanks for sharing. I am fortunate to have so many happy memories being with my friend that they have helped ease the pain of losing her. As you have mentioned, her loss still hurts, but the memories definitely realize how fortunate to have had her as a friend.

      Time will help heal. The wound is still fresh.
