Dedication to a lifelong friend...

Today I learned of a very old friend's passing and my eyes are spilling with sadness.
We grew up together going through grade school and high school and remained friends through all the years.  She had COPD complications but her death was sudden and unexpected.

AUBURN - Kathleen M. Scott Tenity, 68, of Mary Street, Auburn and The Villages, Fla., passed away unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, July 26, 2011, at Auburn Memorial Hospital. She was born in Auburn the daughter of the late John and Ann Nodzo Scott and had resided most of her life in Auburn. Together with her husband, Tom, they spent the last 10 years residing in the winter at their home in The Villages, Fla. Kathy was a communicant of St. Mary's Church. Prior to her retirement, Kathy had been employed for more than 30 years by the Auburn Enlarged School District as an elementary teacher, retiring in 1997. One of Kathy's most memorable and cherished times in her life was becoming a grandmother of twins just seven weeks ago. She will be sadly missed by all of her friends and family, that were fortunate enough to get to know this great woman. She is survived by her loving husband of 40 years, Thomas Tenity; a daughter, Meg Messina and her husband, Gabriele; a sister Patricia Lovell, all of Auburn; twin grandchildren, Evangeline and Gabriele Messina Jr.; a brother-in-law, William (Goel) Tenity; an aunt Mary Rusinko, of Auburn

Good Bye My Old Friend...

I remember your kindness, your wonderful smile
Our loving friendship was but a while~
Too short to lose you, sweet friend.
Remember walking to Seward School,
And both running for Princess in High School?
And Later you taught my own children at East!
And just last year we celebrated our 50th H.S.reunion with a feast!
I still have the little picture of us at age thirteen,
That we had taken at the store's picture booth.
What fun we had in our carefree youth!
And now you will be forever young~
As you walk among the Angels....
        Love, Kerrie

Forever young, what a sad poem from your heart...I am so sorry, Kerrie. This is one of the worst things to me about getting old, losing all my friends, I have lost a lot. She must have been so special, she looks so caring and cheerful, unexpected is always such a shock.
