In life you have friends and good friends. You can call them acquaintances but there are certain friends that are more important than other friends. These are the friends you manage to keep in touch with and typically know what’s generally going on in their lives. Oh and a lot of times these are friends you’ve known since your teens. Friends you talk to as if no time has passed at all.
I lost one of those friends recently. It was a total shocker. I was speechless when my friend told me what happened. I couldn’t think of what to say except:
“Was she sick?”
Of course she was sick. She had cancer similar to what her mom had. For some reason I just never thought of that.
When I heard she was in New Jersey when she passed away all I could think of was how appropriate for her to do so. I’d almost dare to say she even planned it that way. Doris was so full of fight and she never backed down. At least that’s how I saw her. She was passionate and hard and fun and all of the above. She was always good to talk to when you needed to talk.
For all these things I will miss her. Things will never be the same now. Everything has changed.
RIP Doris Woo Trask.
That’s all I’m gonna say about that.
