Farewell Friend ~ Adios, Amiga

A man should choose a friend who is better than himself. There are plenty of acquaintances in the world; but very few real friends.

My friend Carolyn taught me to make everyday in Mexico count & seize each moment, don't be afraid to jump into conversation where I have the obvious linguistic handicap & to explore new things. She & husband Larry are moving back to the states & leaving us all richer for their stay in Mexico. Her Ex Patriot stay south of the border made my life fuller & gave me memories I'll treasure for a lifetime. Every time I have to ask someone "Donde esta", "Que Pasa" or "Sólo estoy buscando"...I'll think of her wisdom & our experiences as well as laughter.

With true friends... even water drunk together is sweet enough.

I know only too well how difficult is it to leave a friend, no matter what the reason. It's never "goodbye" just "see you later.
