One of my favorite families returned home to the States yesterday. I was sad to see them go, but even more sad that I won't be able to watch their son grow and mature.
As you know, I hate the goodbyes. I'm not good at letting people go. Once I find people that I like, I keep them near, but I always know in the back of my mind that this will not last forever. I will try to keep in touch via e-mails and Skype and Facebook, but it's not the same. I'll be missing out on the day to day friendship that made them so special.
Patty, Eric, Alejandro,
Goodbye! You'll be missed more than you know!
PS. I'll be coming to New York to visit you often!
