Sharing happy memories

The writing of “The tribute to my best friend Myrna” column (in the 01.12.2011 blog) and sharing it (by having it published in the Wadena Pioneer Journal, the Sebeka-Menahga Review Messenger newspapers and now online) helps me in my grieving and healing. I am able to reflect on the happy memories and able to see the overall good, rather than focus on my emotional pain.
It is my hope that my thoughts and words would give honor to my best friend and send comfort to the many others dealing with her death.
Several people who knew her have commented and/or thanked me for sharing. Yes, the column touched some hearts as Myrna’s life had touched their lives.
