Helen Laidlaw ( Cater) was my best friend since the 7th grade until her fight with cancer took her from us. We did most everything together during our school years. If I wasn't at home, I would be at her house or her at mine. She gave me a bridal shower and even had my Mother there from the MS nursing home in her wheel chair. She was the maid of honor at my first wedding, and even flew out to Ca. for my last wedding.
We kept in touch all these years especially in Dec. See her birthday and mine are a day apart. I was fortunate to see her one year before she passed away. Her husband offered her what ever she wanted for a Christmas gift that year, and she chose a trip to Ca. for a visit. ( It was as much a gift for me as well as for Helen) Little did we know that would be the last time we saw each other. We enjoyed our visit together and reminisced about old times. I often wondered if she knew this was to be our last time together.
I love and miss you my sweet, sweet Helen.

Because of your beautiful words, Joy, I know Helen better now than I did in high school. Friendships are unique in that they never end.
