It’s more than appropriate to write about a friend in your memory stories. Family members are not the only ones who play a starring role in memories. There are times when family is far away, when the nest is empty, or when family is gone that good friends fill the gaps.
When you write about a friend and your feeling for that person, it gives loved ones insight into your development, regardless of whether it was a childhood or adult friendship. You don’t need to write about every friend you have, but consider writing about those friendship experiences that have helped mold you.
