Dearest Mary – September 20th is here however although that you are not please please know that you are still thought of… 2010 seems so long ago but when I close my eyes and open my heart to the lovely memories you gifted so many it’s as if it were yesterday.

Today I still remember how you used to bring vegetables in a plastic zip lock bag and you would always offer us some!  As you shared food, wonderful stories and words of encouragement with your amazing passion carrots pieces would be flying!!!

Anyone else, I would struggle with – to sit through that – but not you because your heart was so pure -it continues to be delightful memory that I will cherish forever! The psychiatric nurse practitioner dinners our friend Della would invite me to added to my admiration of you because you always had the best questions and commentaries!!!  I miss the time and space we used to share.

You created a sense of safety like no one I know thus I was compelled to share bits of my story – for instance that I grew up very hungry. Food was always a scarce commodity. That made those little boxes of cereal that you snuck from the physicians lounge that much more delicious because they fed my stomach but even more so they fed my soul!  I will always remember coming to work at Peace Health Southwest then Southwest Washington Medical Center and finding little cereal boxes on my desk with your caring notes “I have to keep my Guadaloop fed!”

Now you are gone…and I miss my friend…I looked up to you…you guided me and helped me and many others through our own difficult times and you helped us to see our strengths.  And even the last time I saw you…you took the time to ask me how my grandson was…even though you were in pain…I am so sorry that I was not there for you like you were there for me…I am so grateful to learn later that other friends were there for you …I am so sad for the world, myself included and at the same time I am so incredibly grateful for the period of time we shared!

Your caring words of wisdom resonate deep within me and make me strive to be strong…thank you my friend.  I am sending this to you with loving thoughts…I know you touched so many people but one of your greatest gifts was that you made each one of us feel extremely special…thank you

Siempre, Guadalupe
