Mac called today. I was working, so I didn't answer and planned to call him this evening. Then a text arrived to let me know his mom passed away today.
Karen, thank you for sharing your family with me, and for loving my daughter when I was overwhelmed. I regret not finding time to stop by and say goodbye before we moved; I know that year was hard.
You encouraged Mac to sing, you laughed at girls camp even when your voice gave out, you entertained Lucy when she ran away from us during church—always with a smile and a hug. I will miss you.
