Celebration & Some Sadness
Last weekend our lovely neighbors of many years threw a big party for all their friends to finish up the emptying of their home. They have been having estate sales, and garage sales, and yard sales for months now to reduce their accumulation of (wonderful) stuff so that they can move to Houston and bid LA a fond farewell. I'm devastated and cannot wrap my mind around the fact that at this time next week they will not be here in our tight knit 2 building four plex community.
We are, of course, all of us in our circle of caring neighbors, so really sad to see them go. They have been our bedrock and the foundation of our community! But, as well, we are really happy for them because they are going back to a home town with lots of family and old friends and familiar places.
So here's my shout out:
You have given all of us so much and my husband and I are truly honored to be the recipients of a tremendously special piece of yours (among so many others too that you have so generously gifted us with!) that we will cherish for all the days of our lives.
WE LOVE YOU BOTH. We will miss you every day. Thank you so much for leaving us with some of your most treasured items, especially this incredibly beautiful antique vanity.
It's been a privilege and it's been a gift to be a part of your lives for the last 14 years and because of the marvel of modern communication technology I know that we will remind friends over time and space for the rest of our lives! God bless and God speed you safely to your new home.
