Hi, Lucy here..and of late I have been reconnecting with my old friends that I was with in this service. I recently reconnected with Geraldine J. Farr whom I was really close to in the Navy. She is currently a personal injury lawyer in Fort Lauderdale.
I wrote Geraldine a letter about two months ago telling her details of my life. In the letter, I told her to write back to me because I was eager to hear from her. And she did. I was so happy that her dreams came true because she always told me about becoming a lawyer once she got out of the service.
As a personal injury lawyer, Geraldine provides legal representation to people that claim to have been injured either psychologically or physically due to wrongdoing of another person, government agency and company, or negligence. This did not come as a surprise to me because Geraldine used to act like a lawyer when were still in the service. When one of us will disagree with another person, she will act as a mediator and help us resolve the issue peacefully.
Another thing that did not surprise me when I read Geraldine’s letter is the fact that she settled in Fort Lauderdale. She used to tell me that she always dreamt of building her life in this residential resort city. She will tell me how she will be going with her husband and children to Fort Lauderdale Beach, Everglades Holiday Park, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, Bonne House, and other places to relax during the weekends and holiday. Her wishes came true because she has a good career, a family and everything she ever wanted. I am so happy for my friend. You can see more about her personal injury law firm on this site.
Geraldine was always conscious about her weight and shape. She told that even though having her two children was the best experience in her life, she gained so much weight and lost her shape. She had to work really hard to lose the weight she gained and get back in shape. As of now, she weighs 146.7 pounds. She also told me that she drives a 1999 Mercedes-Benz E, which has always been her dream vehicle since I knew her. Isn’t that a nice vehicle for a first? She promised to give me a ride in it one of these fine weekends, and I am so looking forward to that. Yay!
Even though we live far from each other, reading the letter that Geraldine wrote me made me feel like she is just next to me. It reminded me of the time we shared together back in the Navy, the things we hoped for once we were out of the Navy, and the fun we had. The memories of our old days bring thrill to me. But most importantly, I am very happy that she is living the life she has always wanted. I thank God for being friends with her because she played a huge role in helping me become the person that I am today.
