The View from 35,000 Feet

PHOTO PROMPT © Linda Kreger

Marge watched Dave as he watched the US slip by.

Tammy had died instantly and Bill left in a wheelchair.  The gang gathered from the corners of the globe to pay their respects.

Just the gang sat with Bill after the wake, not speaking a word.

But Dave brought up camping in Oregon.

“Tammy helped me when I fell.  She said she will always have my back.”

Everyone nodded.

“Let’s go for a walk.”

Marge smiled at the memory, a tear in her eye.

How they had laughed as they showed Bill they still had his, and each other’s, back!

    So important to have your friends around you at a time like this. Actually, always important to have your friends around you and to make the time to keep in touch, which seems to be a problem these days.
    Best wishes,

      Life friends do make an effort in the worst of times. Of course they need to be there all of the time, but time and distance… It pays to make that effort on occasion :)
