Lost my friend on her birthday surprisingly. Even wished her one too, weird how you mention that...
I'm glad you cherish your friendship. For me though, its a bit different since I liked her a little bit even though she was engaged to a person from another country.
Any who, I for some reason felt that we weren't really close to begin with and learned that we just didn't connect.
Well, there's many more friends to make out there. And I hope that one day she'll reply back to you.
