My friend Celia lost 2 of the most important people in her life. Her boyfriend of the past 10 or so years passed away this summer and now her best friend passed away about a week ago. She suffers from clinical depression and when I saw her yesterday she asked if I'd meet her for lunch today because she desperately needs to talk to someone. Well, I had to say yes. I do not know her as well as Carol or Linda but still she is a friend and I want to help if I can. She chose a French restaurant I have never been to before so this will also be a treat for me, there is a bakery attached to it and hopefully I'll get either some really good fresh bread or else a good pumpkin pie, I wonder if the French make pumpkin pie?

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. It must be a shock for her, to lose two close person and to be clinically depressed on the top of it. That does not make her life easier. It's good to know she has you in her life. Someone who listens is exactly what she needs. BTW, they do have pumpkin pie in France. It's called Tarte a la Citrouille.

Thank you, I did worry about her but at lunch she seemed to have overcome some of the grief. At least she did mention that she was doing what her friend asked her to do which was to go on living and doing all the normal things like when she was still here.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. I think I helped a little but I know she will still grieve for a long while. She did mention that she is finally talking to her brother again after many years of no contact, I just hope he does not insult her again the way he did before.
