Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.Anaïs Nin
We knew each other at college, Sue and I. We lived in the same dorm--she in the big corner room and I down the hall. I wouldn't say we were close exactly, but we hung out sometimes and living in the same dorm, we saw each other every day.
Last fall I went to my college reunion and Sue was there. She still worked for the university, all these years later. She loved it. It was good to see her yet I could tell something was wrong. I didn't know until later that she had cancer. Ocular melanoma.
Today I learned that she died. They said she was at peace and surrounded by friends. Of course she was. She had so many.
May it be so for all of us--in peace with friends.
Be well, dear Sue. Be well.
