You don’t often meet someone and you just instantly click, so when such thing does happen, there’s no doubt you’ll keep the friendship going as strong as it gets for the rest of your lives.
Well, these two adorable ladies have met each other 80 years ago, and they’ve been keeping the bond as strong as it was the first day they met. In fact, they love each other so much that they moved into the same care home so they can spend more time together.
Meet Olive Woodward and Kathleen Saville, two ladies that have been best friends for more than 78 years.
These two ladies are the true definition of friendship goals, and they have been BFFs for almost a century. They met in school when they were just 11 years old, and even seated next to each other in class at Ravenshead School, Nottingham, in 1941.
They lived next to each other, too, and they just kept their bond growing up. Family life didn’t tear them apart, as both of their husbands worked at the same company, and they lived on the same road once again.
Kathleen lost her husband back in 1989, after 35 years of marriage, and lived on her own until last year, when she decided to move into Berry Hill Park care home in Mansfield. Olive’s husband, though, lived 15 years longer, and she lost him in 2004.
Oliver has two daughters, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren, and after living alone for some time, she finally decided to join her best friend and move into the same care house so they can spend more time together.
These adorable ladies are the oldest residents at the care home, but they say that they look 63, even though they are both 89. According to them, the secret to their long-lasting friendship is telling each other what they think and never arguing about anything. Kathleen admitted that even though the two of them agreed to never cause any trouble at the home, they sometimes do little mischiefs. For example, she once raced one of the managers down the hallway for a laugh, and she notes that she’s so glad Olive is there now, and they both feel like giggling schoolgirls.
“We always say to each other ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it.” – she finishes up, and if this is not friendship goals, what is?
