I'm not sure about this one but... Nancy and I always talked long distance. We could talk for at least an hour at a time. We have been friends for over 30 years. When she lived in IL she would come by my house and visit. My kids loved her. I remember going with her and my girls horseback riding for Susie's 11th birthday. She loved her kids and did her best to raise them with what she had. She sewed or and she had a seamstress sew Susie 's prom dress. I think it was her prom dress. She really never asked for anything. She loved life, loved her mom and dad dearly. I'v never forgotten what her dad taught her. We are all alike, "No matter who you meet in life, remember that each of them always puts their pants on one foot at a time. " She liked visiting her young niece, whom she thought was a little doll. At the moment, I forgot her name.She loved her animals, from dachshunds to Annabelle! She liked keeping her rose bushes. She was so excited to marry Dave! And I was excited to meet him. They did each other good. They had friendship, love and laughter. Laughter was our greatest trade. With every phone call there was laughterand we ended it by saying I love you. I dearly miss my friend.
