“A person attached to another by feelings of affection”: I think the photo montage below speaks for itself?
“A person who gives assistance and support”: Just like the friends who immediately rallied around me and my family after I sent them all a text saying my Dad had died unexpectedly. Visits, hugs, offers of help, phone calls, texts, cards, flowers, emails, attending the funeral, they were all there.
And I am very, very grateful for their existence, their presence and the warmth and joy they bring into my life.
