    It seems  "BFF" or "Best Friends Forever" has become a shallow expression.  As a matter of reference I looked up their definition.

        Best: most excellent; surpassing all others.
        Friend: a person on the same side in a struggle.
        Forever: for eternity, for always; endlessly.

      Without question, Webster has nailed the description of our very best friend forever Becky! She surpasses all as a friend, mother (to only child Shadow), wife, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin or sister.

     I inherited Becky’s friendship with my marriage to Dan. At first she was closed and distant. Upon discovering we had much in common, we became fast friends. She is by far the best wedding present ever!

       Today is her birthday. God sent this world a big smile and a hug on this date. We begrudgingly must share Becky. She is not only our best friend forever but is to all her friends.

       The following poem is for you on this very special day of celebrating you!

Best Friends Forever                                                           

I’ll stand by your side
Help fight all your fight
And never leave you alone
And when you cry
I’ll get a cup and let you fill it up
And dump it in the ocean
And we can sit and watch as your pain floats away
And when you are happy I’ll capture it in a glass
And when you are blue I’ll pull it out and show you
And when you are old and dying I’ll be by your side crying
And when you're gone
I’ll close your eyes
And whisper to you
See you on the other side

       Happy Birthday Becky!

      After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. 2 From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return to his father’s house. 3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. 
1 Samuel 18:1–4 (NIV)
