I am going to miss you deeply. You and Ira were lights in my life when I moved to Nixon and I will be forever grateful for that. I am comforted knowing you two are together again and that one day, Ira and I will be eating green beans off the bush together and you and I will be picking flowers again. Until then, love each other and save me a spot.
