I saw it in her eyes

She walked in to the coffee shop as I was settling up at the counter. The sister-in-law of my son’s best friend. Part of a second family that we had lost touch with when he began his global walkabout.

Kismet or coincidence the two friends were together again skiing down the slopes of Breckenridge so we chatted about them and how her sister in law was fairing with two young girls at home while daddy was away.

Then I saw it in her eyes, just before she asked “and how’s Norma doing? And so I gave her a brief sketch of our current situation with general health, next medical milestone, recent bucket list achievements and finished with how amazing she was and we both agreed she always had been.

  1. Dan, I saw your recent post on FB and then discovered a link to your writing. It is so powerful.

    Sending prayers for your beloved Norma.

    Warm Regards,
