Judie & Kate

There was once two little girls who lived right next door to each other. Judie and Kate. They grew up together, got sick together, played together, fought together, planned their futures together. They were like sisters.

Sadly, one day that changed; as all things in life must. Judie moved away. Not to another state or even another city, just across town. But when you're young, across town might as well be the moon.

The girls continued to grow and as they did they grew apart, becoming opposites of each other. Living separate lives that rarely crossed paths.

Sometimes an entire year would pass without them talking. But no matter what, at any time, Judie or Kate could call or write a letter the old fashioned way that they liked so much, and they could pick up right where they left off.

To this day they don't see each other that often, but Kate still considers Judie her most trusted and best friend.

And while they mainly only talk when things are going bad or random moments in between, that's exactly what they need from each other. It's odd, just like them, but they expect nothing less of their friendship.

A good friend is cheaper than therapy.  ~Author Unknown
