Friendships that are truly great survive not speaking to each other for years and can be picked up where you left off without skipping a beat. I have a friend that I have know since we were in 6th grade together and I moved away when we started our freshman year of high school. We have kept in touch off and on over the years since social media has made that super easy.
Recently we reconnected and I heard about the passing of his 93 year old grandmother Odilia who was an Army widow. The family has created a Indiegogo story to help collect funds to help with funeral cost since the family in the last few years had to bury their own Mother who was Odilia's daughter. I only knew my own Grandmother for a short time and think of her often. My friend and his family were blessed to have her in their lives for so many years. If you can help in any way that would be greatly appreciated.
