My dear Eleanor,
Still shocked, miss our time together, your awesome stories of a time long ago I knew nothing about. Never did I see someone so happy to see me like you! I pray you heard me whisper in your ear before your time here ended. Thank you for your kindness, company and a learning experience.
RIP my friend
Endless love,
