Today I said goodbye to an old friend.  Though we drifted apart in later years due to her withdrawal into herself, she was the very best friend I had from my twenties for thirty years.  I have missed her since she drifted away though I would run into her from time to time and have a short visit.

As I looked though the pictures of her at visitation it brought back a lot of good memories.

The last thing I will remember about her is she had on an orange dress as she lay there.  I am thinking, she never wore orange as it did not go with her dark complexion.  She looked real good in yellow and wore a lot of yellows, browns, tans, and greens. 

I guess we think the strangest things when saying goodbye.  Rest in Peace old friend.
