thirty-five: sympathy for Claire

I met Claire my freshman year of college. We spent the better part of the next six years cohabitating, first in Syracuse and then in New York City. Some of my best memories include her, and even though she’s half a world a way I think of her daily.

Darling I am so very sorry to hear about your grandfather’s passing. I know you shared a mutual adoration of one another and a very special bond.

I hope you take comfort in knowing he lived a good, long life. And his memory will live on in you and all those who loved him (including all his lady admirers at the retirement community).

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. If I can do anything for you, just say the word. I love you.
