For the past week or so, I have had a craving for a Dairy Queen blizzard. Tonight I succumbed. I went through the drive-through, ordered a Heath blizzard, took it home, and enjoyed it ever so much.

On my first bite, it flooded over me—my memory of my dear friend, Cassie. Oh, how she loved Heath blizzards. Often she would ask me to pick up two and bring them to her home, where we would sit and enjoy every bite. I really miss Cassie. I miss our chats on the phone, in her home, and on little drives around Minnesota. I miss her stories – stories of her childhood on the farm in Wisconsin, tales of how she met both of her husbands (she was widowed twice), driving her around to see the Christmas lights, oh, and her delicious sugar cookies and apple pies. I always loved it that she called me her girlfriend.

I'm glad I chose this Heath blizzard tonight. I have loved reminiscing my memories of Cassie.

I remember Cassie well too! She was very special and I'm glad you had her in your life for as long as you did.
It's funny how things we do or eat remind us of people from the past or sometimes right now.

She was a very sweet Norwegian lady. You were such a great friend for her.

Your post about Cassie made my day. I miss her. We were so lucky to have such a wonderful person in our lives. She was very lucky to have you as a girlfriend, too!
