Beverly always comes through for me. And we are on some special wave-length, able to understand each other without words, whether we're in the same room or thousands of miles apart. I am so lucky to have her as a friend.
"Best friend, my well-spring in the wilderness," exclaimed writer George Eliot passionately.
It's true! Friends are precious people who accept each other with unconditional love. Friends celebrate each others talents and acknowledge faults without judgment.

"Special friends multiply your smiles," praised Emilia Larson. "And constantly add to your favorite memories."
