Almedia Knight Oliver


A SPECIAL FRIEND


Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-
it grows sweeter with age

Your friendship likens a precious brooch-
gives cause to hold close to my heart

Friendship can’t be packaged and delivered-
it is the “great work” of God-not man made.

Dedicated to long time friends: Odette Whitaker and her husband Johnny Whitaker
I’m so blessed to have you as my friends.

    This Complicated World is Ironic - is full of Absurdity
    Life is Simple but it is so difficult by its Passive Simplicity
    Life Difficulties are attached more and more to Complexity
    In spite of all, A SPECIAL FRIEND makes your Life Tranquility.

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
