R.I.P. dearest friend and fellow writer ...

Hi, everybody. I haven't posted in quite a while. I just didn't feel like writing and really didn't have much of anything interesting to say. I hope all of you are doing well. A few weeks ago I lost my best friend of some 40-plus years. She was also married to my favorite cousin, which is how we became friends in the first place. She spent the last few years struggling with numerous medical issues and finally left this Earth, hopefully on to another place that will appreciate her phenomenal sense of humor and maybe even her excellent writing skills. Some of you may remember her, Mary B (Bishop), a fellow content writer who contributed for years to HeliumNetwork. com, Textbroker and also good old Bubblews, where her style and wit amassed tons of friends and followers. Mary is the one who introduced me to Helium years ago and helped me kickstart my content writing career. Mary was one of a kind. She will be missed. I write with a huge hole in my heart that will remain unfilled. My daughter is also broken-hearted, as Mary was her favorite aunt and family member. Mary also leaves a wonderful family, who luckily is also our family, so all is not lost. That's it for now. Take care everybody. Mildred the Cat sends her regards and promises to post something one of these days. Right now she and I are trying to survive this most hideous hot, humid summer weather. Serious storms are predicted tonight and Mildred will be seeking shelter under my bed. Image: Pixabay.com

Thanks for your kind thoughts. Yes, it is hard. We were friends for over 40 years, a long time to enjoy a friend.

Thanks for your kind words. Mary and I were both on Bubblews for several year until they "disappeared."

@LindaCPearson Helium and Bubblews went down the drain. So did the Yahoo writing sites. There were a lot of great people on those sites.

I remember her from Bubblews, I am so sorry for your loss. She surely was a wonderful woman, she is no more, but the good memories will stay with you. May she rest in peace.

Thanks for your kind words. She was something else!! She also did some really cute drawings she used for her images on Bubblews. She will be missed.

@LindaCPearson I remember her drawings very well, I wonder if I saved some images, because I loved those drawings so much.

I think I met her in the old Bubblews. May she rest in peace. It is saddening to hear news about online friends departing!
