I would have to say, finding my first, and best, true friend. I never knew what being a true friend was, i had never had one. Then i met Joe. He showed me what being a true friend was.
Standing by me, when no one else would. Helping me, be it financial, or just lending an ear, or just being there. Never being judgemental. Understanding my chronic pain, when my own familiy does not. He never looked down on me for having to rely on s.s.i., or take advantage of help through the V.A..
Tho i've only known Joe for eight short years, he has stuck with me through thick, and thin. He has been more like a brother to me, than my own brother's. Joe has tought me how to be a true friend, and i thank him for that.
Joe does'nt have much time left. He is in the hospital again. He wants to come home, he does not want to die in a hospital. If nessasary, i will quit my job, and stay with him till he gets better, or dies. That is what our friendship means to me, we both give ourselves to this friendship. Totally, and with love.
As Chris's quote starts, "Life is too short"! My Bubba Joe, is only 58 years old, and he is leaving me. Eight short years! Thats all i get, eight short years. Not enough by a factor of ten!
