Meet Katherine (81) and Eddy (85). They both became widows a few years ago and they have been best friends ever since.
Eddy: “We live in the same building. We hang out together all the time. I feel that she understands me.”
“What do you do when you hang out together?”
Eddy: “Well.. we do all sorts of things, like going out to see the movies, watch a theatre play or just a walk through the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Occasionally we travel together.”
“Really? ”
Eddy: “Oh yes! The best thing about our travels is that I get to spend a lot of time with Katherine, and sometimes we even get to share a room. ” Katherine: “Ohh Eddy, stop it you silly man! ”
