  1. I had a dream last night. In my dream I searched the Internet to find my old companion. Ms Joan. The sweetest lady and a dear friend. I woke up at 5am and grabbed my phone and started searching, my search led me to this site where I gasped and felt ashamed for waiting so many years to finally dig through the Internet to find my friend. 2 weeks before my 29th birthday my dear friend passed away. I remember when she used to write me $10 checks for my birthday.

    See the thing is my friend was decades older than me. She was more of a caretaker, I remember sleeping in her guest room once when my parents had an edge cry and had to go out of town. Ms. Joan made me feel so welcomed, she told me stories of her daughter Mary and made me these amazing waffle cookies that were an Italian staple dessert.

    Yes. My dear friend who seemed to frown at some of the other neighborhood kids for running on her yard but seemed to welcome me with warm arms. I even remember running on the grass as a safe haven when the other kids caught up to me during a game of tag.

    Ms. Joan, I’m so sorry I waited so long to finally find you. But I will forever remember your gentle manner and the kind love that you gave me. My family still remembers you even though we stopped being neighbors over a decade ago. We will miss you.

    Your young companion,
    Priscilla Jimenez
