Roadtrip Day 254
Ronnie was up early and doing the stuff on the To-do list. She had it all done by the time I got up and we headed up to Memphis with the specific intent of visiting the Japanese Garden there.
As a memorial. Ronnie’s wonderful friend from Microsoft, David, had a memorial service today. Because we couldn’t get to Seattle for that, Ronnie felt that visiting the Japanese Garden would be a nice, personal memorial because David loved Japanese gardens and made specific efforts to visit them.
We had a pleasant drive there and enjoyed strolling the broader Botanical Garden on our way to the specific Japanese Garden. We spent a lovely time there, contemplating life and friendship. Ronnie shed a few tears. Finally, she placed a small rock, as a memorial, in the crevice of a large rock.
David was a wonderful person and a great friend to her and she is melancholy today.
Requiescas in pace, frater.
David's rock is the small white shape inside the crevice of the large black rock.
