The Silent Spring: My heart breaks

Be careful what you wish for. I have found so many old school friends on Facebook, but sadly learned today that my best friend from high school, Lexie, died in 2017. We were best friends even in primary school. There are other deaths noted in posts over the years and it makes me sad. I feel they’ve been snatched away from me before I could ask, “Remember when …” So, mixed in with the excitement of connecting with girls I knew more than 50 years ago, there’s a feeling of melancholy in my soul. We all had the same dreams, we could do whatever we put our minds and hearts into, but for some of us, it ended sooner than it should have.

Farewell, Lexie – I’ll never forget you.
