~*The Loss of a Friend*~

I sit here completely phone just rang and brought me the news that my friend has died. How can this be?? She was only 42 years old and leaves behind two small children. My heart is broken.
Jill and I met in 1984 at a salon we both worked at. we were both new hairdressers and full of dreams and youthfull energy. We lost track of each other for a few years and then her family moves to Waterford and we reformed the bonds of friendship.
I watched both of her children for three years while I was running my in home daycare. Lindsey my little princess was first and then along came Robbie...a little ball of baby goodness.
Jill would stop by with the kids (they call me kiki...Lindsey couldn't say Kriss when she was little and kiki just stuck) ans her and I would visit...usually on my front porch while the kids played with the dog or ran around the yard.
I will miss those random visits.
I still don't know how she died, there are no details in the mind is racing with terrible thoughts.
They say death comes in three's. My Godmother died two weeks ago, my husbands aunt last week and now Jill. How can this be??
Please pray for their family, for her children that will grow up without her ( 7 & 5 ).
She will never see Lindsey in her wedding dress, she won't be there when Robbie's voice starts to turn into a mans....I will never see her freckled face again....I hope she is at peace.
