I will be 87 in September. My best friend was 87 in March. We met in first grade in 1940. We started college together in 1952 and were fraternity brothers. We both married in the same chapel on campus within 60 days of each other in 1957. I was his best man and he was mine. I went on active duty in the USAF for 12 years but we always maintained contact. My daughter is named after his wife. Both of our wives are dead, his at age 93 and mine at 61 of inoperable brain cancer. Our routine was to be the first to wish each other a Happy Birthday, by phone, e-mail or text message no matter where we were. Despite my having been stationed literally all over the world, we have never been out of touch and have both lived and both practiced law in the Indianapolis metropolitan area since the early 1970s. A friendship of 81 years and still strong.

My BFF and I have know each other since we were very small. we lived next door to each other. We were joined at the hip, did everything together. She is almost 76 and I am almost 75 so that is 70 years of friendship. She still lives in Utah, I live in Washington state, but we still keep in touch by sending cards to each other, Christmas, Easter, Birthday or the occasional phone call Whenever, I go home to Utah, we at least call each other if not try to have lunch together.

I have friends that I've had since kindergarten. Even though we don't see or talk to each other for years at a time, when we do, we pick right up where we left off. Great friends are for a life time. I can relate to the pets that are your best friends for life. In my 64 years on earth, I have had many. When my time comes, I know that they will all be waiting for me on the other side & that makes me happy.

My wife and I knew each other when we were in diapers, but never married until I was 27. We're married 36 years but have been together a lifetime.

The picture of my little friend is my profile pic. I had her for twenty years before she died in 2017. I found her when she was a kitten and felt graced to have such a fine furry friend.

Chriss Crockford, Thank you for your kind comment. When his mother died, my condolence/memory letter to him was the only thing the minister read at her funeral. We became brothers...without the sibling rivalry.
