Throughout this move we have come to the conclusion that, like having babies, moving is for young people! That being said, we would never have survived if it weren’t for the thoughtfulness and generosity of our friends:
Sandy: thank you so much for the care package that included necessities like t-paper (gotta have that!) and clean pillowcases that felt like heaven that night. Not to mention the glass of wine that you handed me as I walked through your door….you sure know what a girlfriend needs and I am so glad we live so close again.
Kate: You provided Rick with all a man needs i.e. a coffee pot that even included coffee and filters, snacks, chocolate and the all important beer. And even a clothes dryer for all his clean, but wet skivvies. Most importantly, a lot of laughs and your constant support during tough times ( our secret). You know too much and now I’m going to have to kill you! Seriously, couldn’t do it without you!
Mike & Nancy: While our evening at the Coronado concert the week before was just what we needed after a weekend of moving, the delicious meal and fun card game (who won that? oh yea….MOI!) this weekend was even better. After eating all of our meals out for over 10 days a home cooked meal was true heaven!
Ron & Sheryl: Who, in the middle of their own move, will provide delicious food and PLENTY of yummy wine on the 4th of July. I only hope they don’t ask to help with the move!
JB & Josh: You both came through with your youthful energy and enthusiasm and turned late nights of moving into productive time, at the very least. Could not have done it without either one of you. JB…we are so proud!
Simple things like the jacket Jerry loaned Rick to wear to the POPS concert since Rick’s clothes are in storage, an invite from our kids to our delicious Ella’s swim lessons to break up the monotony of moving and all of the constant offers to help with anything we need has made this move a bit easier. After all is said and done, your friends and family are the ones who make it all worthwhile and you all definitely
“have a friend in me….”
