Story

I recieved this coin from my friend June. The best friendships teach us how to love and care for one another. I've now known June for almost a quarter of a century. She first came into my life while I was going through a painful divorce that left me as a single parent. I could have never made it through that time without her friendship! We are both from VA and we would often travel in a convoy on the road to visit family (it was a comfort to not make that trip alone). She also provided a ride sometimes for my son, either coming or going, to visit his Virginia grandparents when it would have been hard for me to get off work and make the trip. June showed me during that time what it means to be a steadfast true friend. I hope to always follow her example in my friendships. We haven't seen each other in almost 7 years (hoping to change that after COVID), but everytime we talk, it is as if no time at all has passed. I hope to do something special for a friend this year that honors what I've learned about friendship from June. Not sure who I'll pass this coin along to, but I'm sure that at the right time, I'll know the right person.

This coin came to me as a Christmas present from a dear cousin. I received an advent calendar and decided to share with a friend via text every night. I started this long before I received the coin and It wasn’t really designed to be an act of kindness but a way to tell her how awesome she is and how grateful I am to have her for a lifelong friend. She phoned me tonight and said how much she has enjoyed our experience and that she had been feeling down. my heart was full. I’ll b passing this coin to her in Nashville even though her life is nothing but random acts of kindness. June - Daytona Beach Florida.

I was part of a small Christian group that supports people with Altimezer's disease. We meet weekly to discuss events and encourage one another. This coin was given to me as a thank you for my participation. This coin originated in Lebanon, VA.
