On my old blog, when someone I love passed away I often posted my own tribute on my blog.
I have two people this week.
I called him my BGF (Best Gay Friend) but in reality, he was my only gay friend. We had some wonderful chats about heaven and faith and Jesus and what salvation looks like and what happens when we die. He assured me on several occasions that he knew Jesus as his savior.
I won’t point a finger at his gravestone and declare him in hell.
He said he believed and that’s good enough for me.
He knew for a long time that he was dying. I gave him instructions to greet some of my friends and family members and tell them I miss them.
My other friend who passed away is his complete opposite.
Her illness was advanced by the time she was diagnosed and I didn’t get a chance to give her greetings to relay to my loved ones.
Of these two friends, one of them swore like a longshoreman. The other fainted (metaphorically) in the presence of coarse language.
What a hoot and holler they’re having in heaven right now.
Just the thought of the two of them together makes me smile. Something I haven’t been able to do all day.
I’ll miss them.
Goodbye Daniel and June. You enriched my life. I miss you. See you soon. Love, Carrie
