Me: What a beautiful photo and so good to see Tony and Dave back together again.
Nell: I thought you would like it.
Me: Dave missed Tony so much.
Nell: Well, he’s going to have to do a little more missing as Jubilee Long Weekend is coming up.
Me: Oh dear.
Nell: Tony said he will pop in to see David on Saturday regardless of whether we have any post or not.
Me: Bless him. The love between them warms my heart.
Nell: Which is exactly what you need today.
Nell: Now, saying goodbye to your friend is going to be very hard.
Me: I can’t say I’m looking forward to it.
Nell: But today is also a day for celebrating her life.
Nell: And the chance for you to tell her family how much she meant to you.
Me: Yes. She was such a character, Nell.
Nell: I know she was. I met her several times. Remember?
Me: Oh yes, of course you did. I just can’t believe she’s gone.
Nell: She is with my Charlie now. They loved each other very much.
Me: Yes, they did. Charlie was her boy like Dave is mine.
Nell: And she is at peace. No more suffering.
Me: It was a short but painful battle.
Nell: I know but it’s over now.
Me: I wish you were coming with me.
Nell: You know I can’t. But I’ll be with you in spirit. We all will.
Nell: When you’re on the train and later saying your goodbyes know we are thinking of you.
Me: Thank you.
Nell: And when you come home Kev and I will be waiting at the station.
Nell: You and me always.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
Nell: No need for sorry today.
