I can’t make it through this day without remembering my best friend, Lis. She died on this day, October 25th, 1995 at the age of 41, a victim of Multiple Sclerosis. Lis and I were college roommates and even after our marriages and my husband’s military career put a distance between us, our friendship continued.

Lis discovered she had MS in her twenties. She and her husband, Gary had one daughter and an adopted son. I’ve read that although MS can be severe it is usually not fatal. But it was with Lis.

I will always miss her.
