She was for each of us an ear to listen when all others would do is speak.

She was a gentle soul living out a second act.

I can’t help but feel I failed her.

But, in her ending, we are give another chance to learn.

Life expectancy does not dictate the impact of one’s life.

Tonight we will honor her with her favorites. We will take a walk in the woods, sit on the patio, lick peanut butter from spoons and watch the sun fade.

Good night dear friend, until we meet again.
