Wednesday we had to say goodbye to a wonderful friend who has been an very integral part of our lives for about two years. Our close friend and roommate has left to go back home to Belarus for about 7 months and we do not know if she will be able to come back to the US.
We miss her so very much and today is the first day without her about. My wife and her cousin are a wreck. Out home much quieter and feels empty – lacking that certain energy and vivaciousness that she carries with her. We would not feel so lost and depressed if we knew that she would be able to come back. Saying goodbye is never so bad if you know that you will be able to say hello again.
