I suddenly feel old. Not old chronologically , but sad and old in my heart. A really special friend died last night. You don't have to know someone for years to have a special bond with them. You don't even have to hang out together to have that special
feeling for them. Their grit and strength come through. Their sense of loyalty and setting of priorities comes through. Their smartness comes comes through. Their devotion to their family comes through. Their willingness to talk politics comes through.Their
quiet humor comes through. It is with a heavy heart that I will say goodbye to a very special lady.
