If you’re lucky enough to find good people in this life, do yourself a favor and hang on to them forever. I’ve been friends with some of my really close pals (male and female) for over 20 years now, and I consider myself to be truly blessed in that department.

Here are “now and then” photos of 20 great lifetimes friendships.

To friends! Cheers!
