Now I am sad because a wonderful lady I know died. She was not a young person in years, but she was in heart. She greeted me so warmly. I think she had no concerns that I was different. No concerns that I was autistic or non-verbal. Not like many who focus on my impairments, she saw me and was open to being friends as I was.
I know Louise, her daughter, and Alec, her husband of sixty years, and her son, and grandchildren, and even Louise’s dogs, will miss her. Still, we are all blessed for knowing her while she was here. I think she is one of the angels that come to earth to tell us to live, love, and laugh. Now we need to live, love, and laugh as she would have wanted us to.
