Recently a friend passed away. Several of us used to work with her and wanted to support her family and by going to her memorial service.
The next day, a friend asked me how were the services. While describing how lovely they were I reached into my purse, pulled out my digital camera, and said, "Look at the pictures I took."
My poor friend, KP, got that "deer in the headlight" look. I was slow in picking up the signals she was sending to me. For every step toward her I took she took two backing away from me. Finally I realized that she was afraid that I had taken pictures of the open coffin and was attempting to escape the horror that was coming toward her (and not so gracefully, I might say).
No, I reassured her, the flowers in the lobby were so beautiful I had to take a picture of them. This white and pink daisy was the size of a salad plate and I thought it was spectacular.
In loving memory to our friend, Donna Tuttle .
