How do you define a good friend? Is it defined by how long you have known that person?

Is it defined by who knows your innermost secrets?

Is it defined by who will never let you down?

For me, it is all of the above.

My longest friendship is with one of my best friends Cami Filz, whom I have known for 13 years.

She’s been by my side not only through the good times but most importantly the bad.

While we met in preschool when we were 3 years old, it was a time almost two years ago that cemented our friendship.

Cami was there for me when I needed her the most when my mom died when I was 14.

She always made sure I was coping as well as I could. It was a grief-stricken time, but her caring and kind attitude helped me through it.

There was never a moment when she didn’t have time talk, and she was my shoulder to cry on.

I wasn’t the only one who felt my mom’s loss; I know Cami did too. She would put me before her because she knew how much I was hurting.

Even our moms were friends. When we were in sixth grade and seventh grade, my mom and Cami’s mom, Kristin, would go to the Muskegon Country Club pool in the summer all the time.

We would swim, hang out by the pool, eat food and just have a good time.

Cami is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. She’s supportive, caring, hilarious, and she can handle anything that life throws at her.

She’s always there when I need to rant and do I need to do that a lot.

Cami and I are extremely similar. She’s really funny, and I would like to think I’m pretty funny too.

There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t complain about something to one another. If either of us are in a bad mood, there’s no doubt that we can make each other laugh in minutes and lighten the mood.

I’ll never forget our late-night jam sessions in the car, going to Chili’s almost every weekend, complaining about everyone and everything, slushie runs and everything in between.

I wouldn’t give those up for the world.
