Personal History Question 11 is, “Who were your friends as a child?”
The first people I remember playing with is Joey and Donna. I still speak to Donna these days, just not very often. Joey was killed in an accident many years ago. 🙁
There was the gal who lived behind us, next to Donna. Her name was Blanche. Then there was Jen, and another Jen and her sister Debbie. Although I do not know that I would call them ‘friends’, as they were older than me and saw me as an annoyance. lol.
Then there was Keri and Tara. I had a lot of fun with them. I still talk to Keri every now and again. Tara was killed when I was 13. She was just about to graduate from high school, and was killed in a wreck. 🙁
Then came Yolanda, who I still speak with periodically. And Lisa, Heidi and Buffy, all of whom I am still in touch with. When we moved to PA, there was Tina and Roxanne, and yep, still in touch.
Then came Carly, Vicki, Katy, Tracy, Denise, Heather, Aimee, there were a few others, I guess. Still in touch with Katy and Vic, again though, not often. Heather and Denise and Tracy I still talk to, and Aimee and I had a falling out back in middle school and I would much rather not be in touch.
I moved to Dartmouth, started high school, and became friends with Tina, Scott, and Joey, Andrea, Frank, Missy, Stacey, Chad, Lenny, Kristine, Kevin, Dee, Kelly, Mary Beth and Beth Ann, Julie, Scott, Jen, Larry, David, and Danny, and my niece Emilee and I became very close during this time. These are the folks I spent time with. And I still talk to every one of them except for Kevin and Larry (he is an ex, with a wife who always has to remind me that she is married to him now. *eyeroll* LOL)
Kristine and I don’t talk much anymore either, but still friends on Facebook. Tina and Andrea and their families are like my second families. I still call Stacey and Lenny’s moms “Ma”, and I talk with both of them, as well.
I always managed to surround myself with some really quality people. I have been very lucky like that!
