|Amy and Sandra|
Another time, I found a beautiful bouquet of chrysanthemums; I called her to see if I could stop by for just a quick moment that I had something for her. When I arrived and she saw the flowers she said, “I am so happy you didn’t bring me vitamins!”
Sandra used the most wonderful words. I actually purchased a used dictionary to keep up with her. The last time I saw her she was telling me about one of the nurses aids and said the person was obsequious, another word I didn’t know. When I looked it up the meaning was obedient or dutiful. Then it said sycophant, one who uses complements to gain self serving favor from another, or ass kisser. When I read that I laughed and laughed, I knew exactly what she meant then. I am a better person in many ways to have known this interesting, intelligent, compassionate woman.
