My sweet friend, Lydia. I am so thankful for you being in my life. I am blessed to have spent many work days and lunch hours with you for the past 16 years, and then to be able to hold your hand and pray with you over the past few months. The last two weeks were especially precious to me and I thank your sweet Autumn for allowing me to be with you. I love you so much and miss you already. My birthday office lunches will never be the same, but I'll go out once in August for you, and again in October for me. ♥
