Years ago, I was friendly with a man from work who was very close to his mom.
My daughter, "Heidi," is 39. She is successful, owns her own business and lives with her boyfriend of five years.
My husband and I have a friend, "George," who rents our upstairs.
I have been friends with "Caroline" for more than 20 years.
I need some help. A terrible car accident happened in front of my house a few months ago that resulted in the death of a husband and father.
My husband and I are friendly with two other couples whose children are friends with ours.
My wife and I have been married for 45 years.
I met my lady on a blind date many years ago.
My husband and I have an elderly (90-plus) aunt who lives with her son in a town about four hours away.
I've got a new one for you. My beautiful 16-year-old daughter was interested in a boy her age from school.
