“I don't like that sweater you're wearing- it doesn't suit you!”
And she grabbed his arm to gain support
as she cautiously walked down the steps from her apartment.
They had so much to catch up on-
it had been a while since his last visit..
and oh! how her eyes sparkled,
and her face crinkled with her mischievous smile,
and she laughed her raspy laugh
and caught her breath:
“do you remember when?”
“whatever happened to?”….
“how are you doing?”...
They recalled so many memories that spanned over their forty-year friendship.
Their stories came tumbling out.
She was so happy to see him
So happy that he was moving on
and that he was o.k.
So happy that that he was there
with her –
She was gutsy, outspoken, accomplished
She was radiant, vibrant, witty
She was a trouper as she continued on
into her next journey
I was witness to a beautiful,loving friendship.
I am blessed that our paths crossed.
Farewell dear Nancy
