Saying farewell to a friend
Yesterday we attended a memorial service for our friend who died just before Christmas today. She was ever thoughtful and I think postponed the get together so her death wouldn't be associated with the holidays. Her nieces invited everyone to come to Reata, a restaurant downtown. Her doctor talked about her courage in her battle with cancer and read a poem he had written about her fight. Others spoke of how we remembered her and they were wonderful stories. The nieces arranged for a buffet and drinks. Barbara would have loved it! We were in the geodesic dome on top of the building which is made of glass so she could look down on us and see how much she was loved. I will miss her, but am so glad we were friends.
