Jay told me a few days ago that he had spoken with one of his former co-workers from the convention. He told me about the conversation with Letha and we had a good laugh. I got teary-eyed thinking about her. Here is the conversation that followed:
"Are you looking forward to seeing everyone at annual meeting?"
"Yes." (with a big smile)
"Did it make you sad, to talk to Letha?"
"Will it make you sad to see everyone?"
"Why not? Don't you miss everyone?"
after a minute went by...
"Yes, I miss them. But it doesn't make me sad to see or talk to them. I'm like a book. That chapter is closed. A new chapter has started. You are like a photo album. You like to flip back through the pictures and remember."
He may be on to something.
