The image I have posted is of me and some friends. I am on the far right. On the far left is my friend Pat. In the middle is my friend Brenda. Brenda's husband has just passed away. We are at the funeral home at her husbands viewing Sunday night.

I realize that this is a sad time and maybe some people don't agree with the picture taking at this time. I am not thrilled about it either.

The three of us have been friends since Junior High School. Six of us school friends used to get together with mates and go out to eat once a month. It has been ten years since we last did that. All of us have gotten older and some have health problems or has a family member with health problems. Only one husband left, out of the six of us.

We all make promises of getting together, but those promises never seem to work out.

I say take the picture now, when we are together.

    Day to day living seems to get in the way of the plans we make. Make it happen!

    You are there to love and support your friend. Nothing odd about taking a photo of the 3 of you. Hopefully, you will be able to spend more time together. Sounds like you could all use the time together, so why not make a commitment to see one or more of them soon? Hugs, Jeannie

    It is sad, so many times we have good intentions of getting together with friends and family. But we let life get in the way until it is too late. Take the time and initiative, make the calls, get together now for laughs and memories. Good picture. Do more, make memories. Hugs Pat

    Anytime you are with friends is a good time to take pictures. You should definitely try to arrange a get together. Better to do it now than regret not doing it later. Sorry about your friend's husband.

    I don't think it's odd to take a picture of old friends....even at a funeral service/home. Don't sweat it:) I hear a little sadness there, about not getting together. Do it. Put it on your calendar today:) No time like the present.
