Friends who are like family

Anybody have friends who are so close you consider them like family? Maybe they are your parents' best friends who you feel are like your aunt and uncle. Or kids who grew up with you who are like cousins. Maybe your best friend is like a sister or brother to you.

What do you call these people when introducing them to others? Do you intro them as your aunt, uncle, cousin? Or just by name?

I just got off the phone with my pseudo-aunt who is my mom's best friend and it made me think of this.

BTW, isn't it just great to have these people?

Re: Friends who are like family

we have great friends that i hope we remain close with for the rest of our lives - We would have our kids call them aunt and uncle - just a respect thing
