Some of our sweetest friends have sold their house and will be moving in June. I knew that they would be going. Medical school is ending. Residency is ripening to begin yet somehow I was in denial. Man. I remember when Stephanie first moved here. I’d like to take the honor of being her first friend in Columbus, but I can’t prove that. She is so sincere and fun that we were instant buds. That kind of history is hard to duplicate. She is crafty beyond my comprehension. A Martha Stewart in training. She inspires me to be better. Then there is Larry, her crazy but charming spouse. It’s hard to find couples where not only do the women get along with each other, but they don’t have any qualms with the other one’s spouse. This is one such couple. Larry is a catch! He is always doing the most thoughtful things and helps me with whatever is needed when they are guests in our home. Sigh. Last but not least is their cutie pie Creed. His hair is cooler than mine ever has been or ever will be. His dimples are amazing and his smile enchanting. I’m crushed. Who else will go along with our crazy obsession with OSU football? Who else will walk the Pumpkin Show with us? So many memories… I know I need to be mature and remember that they aren’t dieing…but a little piece of me is.
