My old high school friends DD27 died.
She called me last Thursday to let me know. I have know Lilly since 10th grade and we have kept in contact throughout the years. (33 years) Her DD27 died on the 5th of March due to Sepsis. She had Cystic Fibrosis and was in intensive care.
Lilly invited me to her DD's memorial on Thursday. She said it was going to be a potluck to bring something if I want but if I cant thats okay too. Im going to take a green salad since I have to drive 2 hours to get there. She says they will be celebrating her Dd's life. HerDD was cremated, not sure if they will be spreading her ashes that day but I am assuming they will be.
I have never been through this before. I have never had a friend who lost someone like this, I have really never lost anyone that I was close to except my grandpa, grandpa. Is there something I need to do for her? Something extra special, a card, flowers? Or do you think just being there for the memorial will be enough to show my love and support?
