This I believe; Recently I met a fantastic, beautiful, intellegent woman. She and I came to be good friends in two short months. We both have health issues, as I am sure everybody does, and we would talk everyday about those issues and our families. We enjoyed talking to one another. My friend past away just two days ago. It was a blessing to have such a good friend in my life, even if it was short lived. What I will keep in my heart is I was there for my friend. Being positive with anybody you meet can make your own life happier. Smile to a stranger, and I gaurantee they will smile back at you. THIS I BELIEVE!
