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.
