Four Women Who Were Friends In High School Reunite At The Same Retirement Home

Four women who were friends in high school, back in the 1950s, have now been reunited because they all live at the same retirement home.

Life is all about relationships. No one was made to experience life all by themselves. We all require connection with other human beings. Even the most standoffish and anti-social individual wants someone who knows and understands them. 

One of the most important types of relationships we’ll ever form in life is friendships. Friends are special people who are shoulders to cry on when times get tough. They give a word of encouragement when needed, and they are there to celebrate some of life’s special moments and milestones. 

However, unfortunately, whether due to time or distance, some friendships can fade and cease to exist. But others are strong enough to withstand such hurdles, including four women who went to the same California high school in the 1950s. Despite the time that may have passed, four elderly women remain friends. They now live at the same retirement center.

In a clip posted on YouTube, the women reminisced about their high school days. 

“We had a prom every year,” Joan Harris said. “We had a girls basketball team. And we played other Catholic girls’ high schools. We had typing, and we had music and art.”

While in their advanced age, the women understand just how valuable and important friendship is now. Their time together means everything to them.

“I think friendship is very important,” Sylvia Crane said. “And having old friends is wonderful. There’s so many of us that are gone. It’s very important to me to know that I still have these three wonderful women around me.”

What a heartwarming story about friendship that has endured and withstood the test of time! 

Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may be ruined, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
