  16. winnie Jackson says:

    my very best friend I met 5 years ago. We connected right away. She has a heart that is larger than life. We both feel the same about just about everything in life. She has a great sense of humor and with being a care giver for my husband she keeps me grounded and in laughter on almost a daily basis. We both feel the same about life, religion, and giving to those who are less fortunate. When I have been in need of a shoulder to cry on she was always there. I need here as much as she needs me with family issues. We all have a journey in this life and with a very good friend it sure does help and make life so much happier.

  17. Leslie Toth says:

    I’ve know my bff Mary Ann for 31 years. Our children grew up together as we enjoyed sharing tea time, thrift shopping and teaching together. I move away for 13 years but recently moved down the street for her so we can resume “playing” together as we share recent stories & photos of our grandchildren!

  18. Margie Shaw says:

    I guess you could say I’ve known my best friend my whole life of 55 years because she is my eldest sister. Don’t know what I would ever do without her. She’s 15 years older than me so she has always been the one taking care of me.

  19. Kathleen Fleming says:

    I have known my BFF for almost 5 yrs. She is my almost 5 yr. old granddaughter Rowen. Years, distance and life circumstances have separated me and many of my adult female friends, and one day recently I was lamenting to my little granddaughter that grandma doesn’t really have any friends anymore, to which she immediately and emphatically replied, “Yes you do, Grandma–you have me, I am your friend!!” I suddenly realized she was right <3

  34. Vickie says:

    I have known my BFF for 57 years. We met in the second grade (there was no kindergarten in our day).
    We have remained close friends for the entire 57 years, never had an occasion to be mad at each other.
    We keep each others spoilt dogs when the other of us goes out of town and can’t take them. We spend the night with each other a few times a year. Our husbands enjoy each other’s company as well.

  35. My friend and I have known each other for 67 years! I cannot believe it has been this long, but have treasured her friendship all of this time. She just visited me for my birthday this year coming 2000 miles. We laughed and talked about our childhood and had a blast.

    I have been friends with my BFF since second grade when we sang “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” in the talent show. I still remember her long sandy blonde hair when we were little girls singing on the stage. We then played the drums in band, and both went into the drill team in high school. We are still friends, and I love her like a sister. It has been since 1972. 45 years is a long time. We remain good friends, and I still call her whenever the world is too much, and I love hearing about her family and seeing her daughters pictures, and her grandchildren’s pictures. My whole life has been blessed because I made a sweet friend in elementary school!

  42. Cynthia Meier says:

  48. Christie Parks says:

    25 years

  49. Patricia Stover Hobbs says:

    I have known my BFFs for various lengths of time. I have three. My mom for 53 years, my sister for 53 years and Carol who I force out of her comfort zone Soooooooo many times a week hahahaha! I love that we can go all week without talking do to busy schedules and when we reconnect at the end it is seamless. My mom is legally blind so I do spend a lot of time with her, my sister lives in New Jersey and I in Michigan. Carol lives 10 miles away, which here in the country as you know is just down the road a bit. We are each others sounding boards, confidants, and shoulders to cry on. I would be a hermit without my besties.
