October 3, 2016

A couple of weeks ago I met some close friends for a lovely dinner.  We are in pretty constant communication via text and facebook, as most people are these days, but we don’t get together nearly as often as we would like. Which is ridiculous because we all live within five miles of each other.

Then suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, one of them passed away unexpectedly.  Nothing puts things in perspective like getting that particular phone call.

I spent most of last week in a haze.  A daze.  A funk.  I was and continue to be shattered.

The wake was Thursday, the funeral was Friday.  On Saturday the rest of the group got together for a quick bite and a toast.  We were are funny and outrageous and inappropriate as she would have wanted us to be.

And here I am, back at work on Monday. Life goes on, of course. But not quite the same as it did before.

Rest in peace, my friend, and Godspeed.
