Sorry to hear about your friend. How are you holding up? Stupid question but are you okay?
Well, thanks for asking. I'll answer because it may be of general interest. This one was hard, even harder than my parents, I think. I knew her for 35
years. We were colleagues and close, but never lovers. I hired her twice and she was by far the best hire I ever made, totally competent. She was the
kindest person you could ever meet and a friend to everyone. I don't think I ever saw her angry. Miffed, maybe, but never brow-furrowed hot angry. She
was a better person than I by far.
The thing is, I felt her go. Last night I somehow knew it. I asked her to take me with her, but, of course, we're probably going to different places.
