I am writing to you, even though you aren't here, to tell you that I am thinking of you. Remember that little bookcase I had you save from your folks' cabin? Well, for the last 10 and a half years its lived over at Maggie's apartment with VHS and DVDs in it. When she moved out last month, I knew that was one thing that wasn't going any place but back to my house. Last night the roomie suggested for the time being, to put it right inside her room's door and we'd put the cookbooks on it. There they will be safe from the cats and easy to access for cooking. I miss you, but I see things every day that make me think of you. If you have a way, please put in a good word with that guy upstairs... Love - Elic

How sweet that is to keep her bookcase. So sorry she is no longer here.

I have a lot of her stuff, she had no family to leave it to... but this was a special, little bookcase that, like I said, was with a friend for the last 10 years.

@ElicBxn Sounds like she was a very special friend and those are not always easy to find.

I can feel your emotion here, and I can tell that Elaine was a special person in your life. Sorry you lost her. Is today a special day?

no, today wasn't a special day, except that I moved the bookcase and thought of her
