WHEN FRIENDS MOVE AWAY
Philip, Derek and I went to dinner last night at our next door neighbor's house on the left side, the Girardi's (Roberta is on the other side). they said that they had something to tell us, and since it was a school night, I thought that it was a little out of the ordinary. While we were there, they told us that they are moving to Texas because Bob has been transferred. They will be gone within the month.
I am heartbroken for Derek. The news hit him especially hard because he is friends with their two children, Jackie 10, and Curtis 8. He and Curtis are like two peas in a pod, and Derek plays with him just about every day. He doesn't seem to understand why things like this happen, and both Philip and I spent a lot of time talking to him about it.
I'm not looking forward to that day.
