I lost my best friend in 2013, to say I was devastated was an understatement. It rattled me to my core. I was in my 40's I didn't expect a friend at our age to die so soon. It wasn't pleasant not that fighting cancer ever will be. Cancer took my friends hair, and dwindled her down to a shadow of her former self. She left us in January 2013 and about a month after she was gone, I was lying in bed almost asleep - I opened my eyes to see a shimmering outline and faint details of my friend standing by my bed. She looked beautiful full of light and had a big smile on her face. I wasn't scared or ready to jump out of my bed. I in fact looked straight at her, waved to let her know I could see her and she smiled, for a few seconds we just looked at each other, then she faded away. I miss my friend, we met in 1990, like sisters we were always there for each other even though we lived 5 hours apart by car. I truly believe our departed loved ones can show themselves to us or deliver those messages that they are near from time to time.
Love and miss you Miriam, until we meet again.
