I saw this and had to read it because April 23rd was my 60th too.
It’s an interesting story of school girls who have reached the milestone and stayed friends.
I stayed friends with one girl from school whose life hasn’t been as good to her. She married her husband the same year as I did, but unfortunately lost him through illness a few years ago. Prior to that her brother was killed in a car accident, and one of her sisters died very suddenly. Last year her neice was murdered by her husband. We celebrated our milestones together with a night in a posh hotel, a spa day and meal.
