A Good Goodbye Takes Work

The gift of a good goodbye is time and space.

Moments and hours to recall with gratitude the gifts that have passed between us.

Rooms and tables gathering a community of recollection that will tell stories.

That time and space doesn’t just exist, though. Someone has to set it aside and work to prepare it.

For my colleagues and friends who did that work for yesterday’s goodbyes, I am unspeakably grateful. You have given me a gift I can never repay, and you have taught me the importance of working for a good goodbye. I will hold myself to very high goodbye standards from now on.
