The true value of friendship is immeasurable, and as we age, authentic relationships become more meaningful than ever before. To celebrate the significance of these special relationships, new and old, Parkway Place senior living community paid tribute to and hoped to spark some new relationships during a special National Best Friends Day reception for residents at the community. A group of nine Parkway Place residents have known each other for decades and met through Houston's Second Baptist Church. After forming special bonds in their younger years, their relationships continue to grow as they share life together as residents of Parkway Place.

During the National Best Friends Day reception, residents celebrated old friends and their new friendships made at the community. There was an area for residents to write notes to their friends to express appreciation. As seniors age and experience hardships, like the death of a loved one or illness, these relationships are truly irreplaceable. We hope you'll come out to celebrate the bonds of friendships new and old with these seniors and share this inspiring occasion with others.
