Cow Belle: Old Year, New Year ... Old Friends, New Friends
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Isn’t it interesting how the “passing on” of an old friend will bring new friends together because of it?

So it is with the loss of nephew and cousin, Greg. Because of Greg’s death, new friends have come into our lives that we didn’t know two years ago.

Sitting around Sonia’s dinner table, a group of former strangers, Kathy and Doug, Margy and Gary, and Wayne, all friends of Greg, shared with Sonia and I, delicious food and stories and memories of Greg, revealing how each had interacted with him in their individual situations in the past.

Some stories were hilarious, some almost brought tears, especially the difficulties of the last two years of his life.

Each could tell small and large things about Greg that the rest didn’t know. We shared some photos of his beautiful, one of a kind creations that tells us “Greg, you will never be forgotten.”

I wonder, during the New Year ahead, 2014, who’s passing will bring together a new group of strangers who could become friends?

Seems like I should be at the head of that line.
