      365 days ago I lost my best friend - Lynn

      Today it’s been a year since my sweet Lynn went to the Bridge, we are, me and Mel, going to her grave this afternoon bringing a candle and some flowers, spending some time in quiet meditation, going through some old memories, and shedding a few tears.
      She was a very special girl, born on 5/17/1999, the Birthday of the Lord Buddha, which probably made her a "Buddhist by birth". Did I tell you I’m partial to prime numbers? 5, 17, 1999 – all three of them, seventeen being my favorite by far. Like those primes she was an altogether original being and like a true Buddhist she was wise, modest, compassionate and non-violent. We were together for fourteen years, twelve of which just the two of us, and never in my life have a spent so much time with anybody else; we were together in all kinds of weather, almost 24/7 and it was something really unique. She was my best friend, my soul mate, my mentor who explained to me what is really important in life, helped me readjust my priorities and showed me that even having very little you can live a very happy and comfortable life, and, most importantly, she knew me better than I have ever known myself. Thank you for all that if you can hear me.
      We had a lot of good time together, celebrating:
      Thanksgivings

      Christmases

      Birthdays

      and munching on tortillas, with tortilla “butts” being your favorite.

      We would spend long nights watching our favorite movies while enjoying dark beer and pig ears, and having a lot of fun.
      The older you’d grown the more I realized how much I loved you and tried my best to avoid spending time without you knowing I would have hated myself for wasting any of the precious time we could have had when you were no longer here one day.




      And then, the last day had come, unexpectedly, you were on a walk with me in the morning and gone in the evening, all in a single day, July 23, 2013 and there was nothing anybody could have done to change it. Do you notice the numbers? 7, 23 are both primes and 2013 is the only exception. She didn’t want to leave in 2011 as she’d promised to stick with me until I was 50; what a wonderful birthday present, and 2017 was far, way too far for her to make it. However, she gave me at least the final 13, another prime and also my favorite.


      Thank you for sharing your life and your wisdom with me; you’ll always be in my heart, never forgotten and thank you for sending Mel and watching over us. Rest In Peace, sweet Lynn

      Mike, you have been blessed to have such a wonderful companion as Lynn. Your tribute to Lynn reveals your deep love for her. Memories are wonderful, but they can also bring tears to our eyes as we realize we will no longer see the love in their eyes or feel the gentleness of their touch. Hopefully Mel will also bring you such love and happiness and follow in Lynn's footsteps.
