Friends are Friends Forever

March 23, 2013 2:11am CST
Another friend is leaving for abroad to work. In the past, several friends had migrated to other countries but weeks before they left, we gave each a tribute suited to his or her own personality traits. I usually direct the tribute with those quite unique concepts (at least to me they were unique concepts..)..no problem with that. But this time that we need to make a program for the tribute again, I really don't have enough time anymore. I lack the time already to do a powerpoint presentation or a unique scrapbook or a poem/song..our friend is leaving in a week's time. I am a bit of an OC person. I need details, I need time, I go for perfection, for beauty..well, tribute or no tribute, I'm sure our friend can readily appreciate our group singing to her friendship songs that will always remind her that FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS FOREVER. What do you suggest can be done to give a friendship tribute in such a short period of time for preparation?

Yes, as friends we never let distance put a coldness in our friendships. It's true that we can still find good friends that will remain your friends through the years physically present or not. Thanks.

well since you've told you have very less time..hmm..well according to my opinion if im giving a gift to someone,it should remind them about me each time they see it..and the more they see it..the more they remember me..what one of my students gave me for a farewell party were a pair of goldfish which i have placed in a small round globe aquarium in my room...each time i enter my room and see it,it reminds me of them and puts on a smile on my face...so since you have less time,i suggest you go for something that they would use or see everyday and by that way they think of you everyday..that's my opinion..

Thank you for your advice. I think I might also do this because as I've said, time is of the essence right now and giving a gift that would remind her of "things" is a good idea too.

it would be beautiful for a friendship to actually last forever. but sadly many times this doesn't happen. the person I've known the longest is my ex-highschool colleague. we kept in touch so far but there was a moment when we lost track of each other for almost 2 years after having an argument

Whenever a friend leaves to migrate or work abroad we also did the same thing. We throw a surprise party and give her things that will always reminds of our happy days. Scrapbook is one of the best- with our photos and messages on it.

As I was reading your post, i remember my friend chachie, we had a miscomunication and lost contact since then... I did send her a private message on her facebook account, however, she did not respond... anyways, I was the one who told her to have a distance for a while until the situation cools down... I do agree that friends are friends forever, no matter what... no matter how long you both lost contact or how long you did not see each other... Deep in your heart, she's there and she's in your heart... A simple card, or a simple bonding time.. moment with her, a simple party together as long as the thought is there that is enough to be appreciated by a true friend... Why not write a personal song for her and sing it to her...even if you are out of tune, am sure your friend will truly appreciate it... Thanks and happy trip to your friend.
