This is pretty difficult for me to write. Emily has been a constant in my life as a member here for years. Lately she has become even more important to me as a co-worker and friend. More times than I care to admit I’ve reached to her for advice on how to handle a hairy situation. I’ve always looked to her as the voice of reason.
The two of us are diametrically opposed to almost everything in life. Food, politics, social issues, etc. But regardless of that, our friendship works beautifully. We accept each other! I know she’s not leaving us for good. And honestly, I can’t wait to just talk to my dear friend.
We’ve been through a lot together in a short period of time. @jrtpup’s passing is the first monumental even that comes to mind. That unfortunate event brought a lot of us together @David_dns, @Philmore, @Stemwinder_Gary, @MarieB, @Stoner, @Linda_G, @Doris_D, @DanP, @John_M2 and probably many more that I can’t remember right now. It created a strong bond that can never be broken.
Emily, you are the reason we are here. The reason we call each other friends. The reason we love this community.
Take a look at this video. It is the reason I’m here and the reason I call my D friends my bumblebees.
