A FAREWELL TO FRIENDS

An Orchid for My Friends



Photographed 11/06




Time has come and I must say farewell to good friends. As the earthly bonds are slipped, never again to feel the warmth of a sunny day, the cool wetness of the lake or the bitter cold of a snowy morning I am at peace with this. It’s with the deepest sadness I bid you farewell not to be reunited in this lifetime. I leave you an orchid in remembrance.

You have always been by my side, ready to aid me at any time. You will never be replaced and forever missed. I will always think of you with the fondest of memories. It's so true that we never realize what we have until we have lost it. There is no sweetness in this parting, only sorrow.
