Some 22 years ago I joined an AOL chat room dedicated to discussing As the World Turns. There was a small handful of ladies who participated. Slowly all of them left but one and myself. Betty, who I always called Bee from her AOL name, was the last remaining participant, but for me. As the show got a bit boring, we talked about anything and everything else, but religiously we both showed up every Monday night to chat. At some point into these visits Microsoft had opened up a gaming site and I asked Bee one day if she liked to play games. As she said she did we gave the site a try and would play mostly Hearts or sometimes Spades there while we chatted. After Microsoft changed there software package to one that was not as desirable Bee and I would move around the Internet looking for more favorable game sites. One of us would always come across something to try, eventually landing at Facebook full time. The games varied from Hearts to Sorry, Battleship, Cribbage, Packrat, Yahtzee and more. Bee taught me how to play Backgammon and we played that for years, trying various versions over the net. I'll never forget Bee's lesson when she told me she'd teach me. “Roll the dice, the game will show you were you can move”. That was it and all I really needed. Through those 22 years of game play we got to know each other well. I watched her marry off her children and become a grandmother and watch her retire. I was there to listen when her family was sick and when they were well. Anytime I needed something, even simply help locking Pack Rat cards I just had to send a message. Bee would be there in short order asking what I needed, always providing. I did the same for her without question. My one regret was never meeting in person; we had always discussed that but it never happened. Rest easy my dear friend. You had a long battle. But you will live on in the hearts of your family and friends. And I will miss you dearly.
