Everything was difficult to remove, but the personal
Of course, I took shots of every nook and cranny of the apartment, and stopped to reminisce about each one methodically--even the toothbrush and Denture Cream.
Everyone calls the photographer crazy, but can't thank them enough

I just wish he had had the courage to say goodbye--never mind say, I love you.
I know he did; we made peace years ago, and for that alone I'm most grateful.
Peace out, peace in.
