My childhood friend – Joe Geisel Though our friendship did not withstand the test of time Joe, I wanted you to know that you played a big role in my childhood. We knew each other for so long that I can’t even remember the day we first met or how old we were. I just remember all the fun times had growing up, from riding bikes together to climbing trees at the local park, to driving around town when we first got our license, to having overnight sleepovers and popcorn together at your house.
But one thing I’ll never forget is the moment of our senior year of high school when our bond together started changing. Specifically the day that I found out you had spent some alone time behind closed doors with my girlfriend at the time and never speaking a word about it…which just wasn’t something close friends would’ve done to each other.
I guess we were both becoming different people and hung out with different friends. It’s as if life was taking us on different paths, each of us following the path of our own choosing. It was clear that our friendship would suffer, and that one day we would go our separate ways forever. And that’s OK. But I enjoyed the good times we shared and will forever remember the memories we created together in our childhood.
I wish you nothing but the best and hope that you have the life you longed for is the life you are now living.
