My Friend the Drangon Fly Lost Twice

I lost a great friend twice. We were neighbors. We talked every day for 2 years. We shared meals and played games. Our kids played together all the time. My husband and I never really conected with her live in boyfriend so when we moved away we lost touch.  A few years later she had a tragic accident. She got up in the middle of the night to let her new puppy out to pee. She stopped in the bathroom on her way back to bed. Tired and groggy she slipped and fell. Her face went down on the toilet plunger hitting her in the eye. She passed away that afternoon. We talked a couple of times in the few years after we moved. Not a day goes by I don't think of her and all the joy she brought me. I miss her! She loved dragon flies.

I'm sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing the story, I was attracted to it because of my own obsession with dragonflies. You never know when its your time..

It is so sad when we lose a friend. But evan sadder when one dies.. Especially when you never got to say good bye.. I lost My very Best friend 28 years ago. I have never got over it or had any closure.. There has never a day gone by I that I dont think about her.. Life may go on but you never forget..
