Hello Jo. You and your friend are both very lucky to have each other. It's a blessing to have real friends for many years. I'm sure she is a very nice lady just like you. I will also send her an invite as soon as I find her. Thanks. Have a wonderful day!

Hello ANTIQUELADY! So you and your friend have been friends for over 40 years? OMG! That would be a world record..lol! I hope I could have a longest friend like that but I am only 22 and that I don't have a friend for 22 years..We are only four years together with my closest friend in college but now, I haven't seen her lately..

That goes to show you are worth being befriended that long. Not all could get friends for life all because some are not really worth the friendship while some are not lucky enough to find real worthy people to make good friends with. Well, I have so many good friends and they have been with me since my adulthood but not for as long as 40 years. But I have one real good friend who has been my best friend for almost 24 years and I believe it will be for life...it's none other than my husband.

That's a wonderful thing to still be friends for someone that long. I have known my friend for 33 years. We met each other in Kindergarten when we were five years old.

I could only wish for a friend that long! I think it's great. I think most people can count true friends on one hand. My grandmother had a friend from the time she was a teen and I wouldn't know what it would be like to have someone I was that close to for that long. They could DEPEND on each other in a real way. I think it's great she's here. HI ANNIE FANNIE!!!

Can't say that I do. The oldest friendship I have is about 15 years. She was my first roommate in the military. 40 years is a long time. I hope that my friend and I are able to keep in contact that long.
