My Friend Mary.

Posted: May 31st, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: CoMO | 7 Comments »

Back when I lived in Columbia Missouri, I worked with a woman named Mary.

Mary was feisty.
Some days I loved her for it.
Some days I wanted to ring her neck.
Most days we got along just fine.

I’ve seen her twice since we moved back to Minnesota.

The last time I talked to her was about a month ago. We stopped by the old store to see a few people, she of course was at the top of my list. We chatted for a few minutes and showed off the boys. I gave her a big hug before we left.

I never thought that would be the last time I’d see her.

Mary passed away last week.

Working for years like we did Mary got to see me grow up. From an 18 year old student who (probably) gave her a lot of grief to the ally in the conference room years later. From butting heads to rolling our eyes in agreement we had good days and bad. I’m so glad I knew her (even though now I feel like I didn’t really know her at all) I’m so glad I can call her my friend. I’m so glad I got to see her one last time.

Mary, you will be missed.
