Dear Mr. & Mrs. Morgenstern and the rest of the family,
I wanted to share with you some of
the things I love about Nancy.
A few years ago, she wanted to set
me up on a blind date. I -wasn’t sure
about it, so Nancy suggested we go on a double date. The dates didn’t
work out, and I don’t even remember the guy’s name or what he looked
like, but I do remember that Nancy and I laughed a lot. Nancy laughs all the
time. She is that kind of person. Happy. Funny. Energetic. Athletic. She is
a woman who embraces life.
I admire her ability to be so disciplined
about cycling and working out at the gym. I could never keep
up that pace.
I think most of her friends admire
that quality in her.
But most of all she was a good friend,
a loyal friend, and a solid person. The two of us drove to a
mutual friend’s wedding a few years ago in the
pouring rain. Nancy and I weren’t even so close with this person anymore.
But she felt it was the right thing to do. She was right. We went to the wedding
and many of the guests were absent because of the poor weather conditions.
We were both glad we went.
One other thing that stands out in
my mind is that Nancy isn’t interested
in gossip. While it’s pretty common for girlfriends to get together and
talk about others, I don’t remember her ever being all that interested.
She wasn’t judgmental of others and expected the same in return.
I miss Nancy. Her loud laugh. Her
She was the best.
