I have never tried to be involved with any kind site such as this before. Maybe it is to heal my pain. Or to see if I AM THE ONLY ONE??
A Gift for Wendy
My friend Wendy and I have been friends since 1973. When I sadly learned how ill she was, I knew I had to do SOMETHING. What better gift could I give then to find our Patty. So basically Wendy, could tell her good-bye.
Patty, Wendy, and I grew up in Indiana. After graduation, Patty and I left Indiana. Patty to Italy. I relocated to Louisiana. In 1989 we lost contact with Patty. But Wendy and I thought of Patty often. But with Wendy’s health decline, I became OBSESSED in the search for Patty.
I had no idea how many disappointments and false hopes I would come across in this search. Plus the “issues” it would cause in my marriage. But I have learned in life that one TRUE FRIEND. Is worth more than any amount of money. I also had no idea how HARD SHELLED this world has become. Most of my pleas have gone unanswered. The rest were answered with sarcastic or rude remarks. HIRE A PRIVATE EYE!! Or “we have no time to offer you.” Am I crazy to care for a friend like this?? Most I contact seem to think so.
Sadly I told my friend Wendy I am at a loss. With nowhere else to go or try. Wendy being the friend she is, UNDERSTOOD that I did TRY. But the pain I feel. That I am unable to give her this one GIFT. I feel I failed. Wendy and I talk often. I wish I could see her again. But money is a problem there too. She tells me talking is enough. I wish I could do more.
Does anyone have any suggestions with overseas searches? Your feedback is welcome.
