Sometime in the mid 1960's ~ My good friend, Karen. The short story ~ we met during high school and became very good friends. We spent every summer day together, got summer jobs at the same country club, and went off to college together. Marriage took her off to the state of New York and we lost contact for a while. She now lives in Arizona. We got together in Ohio a few years back when we were both there visiting, and the years melted away. A lot has happened in our lives since those years when we shared just about everything. We each carry those long ago memories and a piece of each other in our hearts. She'll always be my good friend, "Gumpie".
