Coping with the loss of your best friend

When we are young, we feel as though we cannot survive without a best friend.  We can tell them our secrets and we hear theirs and feel like the sun rises and sets on them.  Few of us, though, have the experience of going throughout our entire lives with that friend.  This week we are talking to Chris who met her best friend Cathy in third grade.  They lived in the same town, married and had children at the same time, and raised those kids together.  When Cathy was 65, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and died with Chris holding her hand at age 70.  Chris talks with us about this loss and how she is trying to figure out her life without Cathy.
