Today’s prompt is:  How you met your best friend


I met my best mate in 1966 when I went to high school. Bernie is a loud and lovable fellow and somehow, we have stayed mates ever since.

We haven’t always seen eye to eye but we have relied on each other over the years. At times, as have been apart and in some cases, several years passed before we re-connected.

We try each month to have dinner together, his kids have always referred to me as their Uncle.

One of the best things I remember about him is that when my mother died, even though we lived far apart in those days he and his wife were there at her funeral and I have always been grateful for that.

  1. It’s what best friends do. You don’t have to live in each other’s pockets, but knowing someone is there in your corner that you can rely on is worth much more than anything material.

    Wow! 120 words describing how a best friend is there for you at your darkest hour. That describes a best friend SO well.
