Answer for question 4160.

Who was your first best friend? Are you still in contact with them? If not, what would you say to them if you could talk to them today?
My first and best friend was Elizabeth Price. We were in 5th grade together. Playing our violins. Lived in the same neighborhood.
One day her mom, greatly pregnant with her third child, invited me over. She said, "Bring your violin".

I went. We played our hearts our for her. Me and Elizabeth. 10 years old. Must have sounded horrible, but she smiled and said, "That's good. That's really, really good." And I believed her. Made me want to practice more and try even harder.

One day, not long after our violin concerto debut, Elizabeth didn't show up for school. And she never returned. Her mother had died in childbirth.

I never got to cry with Elizabeth. I never got to hug her say how sorry I was.

That was many, many years ago. But it was like yesterday.

And I'm crying while I write this.
