I cried with my neighbor this morning

She came over to tell me her husband died unexpectedly last week. I knew because another neighbor broke the news to me on Friday.  

Very sad circumstances. I told her Jeff had meant a lot to me and was my favorite neighbor. She said,  I know Maggie met him with her tail wagging at the gate. Maggie was their beloved retriever they lost almost 2 years ago. Maggie was my son Edgar's girlfriend.

 Losing a good neighbor hurts more than you'd think it should when you're older.  :(

Both husband/wife neighbors in the house next to us are gone now.  When we moved in, husband had dementia, about a third of the way through its stages.  I was sad not to know him before that.

We loved his wife, too. I think she was in her early eighties, and wonderfully friendly --enough to talk with me over a beer when I'd offer.  The world is a little less bright with them gone.

Peace be the journey, Cheese.  Glad your neighbor lady has folks like you for comfort.

I'm sorry Cheese, but I'm glad you were there for your neighbor when she was upset.  My favorite neighbor died earlier this year and they haven't done anything to clean out the apt yet.  He always had a little dragon statue by the door and it's still there.  I like looking for it when I drive out each day, and when that little statue is gone, I'll really feel like he's gone too.
