40 years of friendship is priceless. We met in elementary school where we played together and expressed our curiosity together. We went to high school together where we watched our individual personalities mature and blossom. We became young adults as we experienced College together. Now we talk about what our kids are doing in College and how they are a reflection of us, but with a little extra drive, passion and competitiveness and courage! We don’t talk everyday, but we do have an unspoken camaraderie that results in support and unconditional love. Our friendship is not just something that has survived over time, but is described as that astonishing relationship that gives value to survival.
