a goodbye

December 9, 2009


The weather seemed in sync with the day as we gathered for the funeral: the steady drizzle as soothing as it was dreary. We wrote our final goodbyes on sticky notes, our somber collage to be lowered into the ground with the coffin. “May you have peace,” I wrote. Then we parted, with teary hugs.
And today, one day later, the sun shines warm and bright.
