One of the most disheartening things about getting old is that friends and relationships slowly fade away. While walking a town square and shaking hands with one of my most trusted advisors through the years a certain sadness filled my heart. This man who I have shared countless memories and some of my most troubled times with is slowly fading away. When my obligations require me to move on with my day all I really want to do is hang out with him. We both know that these times together are getting further and further in between and there really isn’t much that can be done about it. This man has taught me so much about life and his wisdom has help guide me through this thing we call life and frankly I probably took our relationship for granted together for way to long. I need to make sure he knows before it’s too late what a difference he has made in my life.
