Good-bye, old friend, and welcome back

IN SOME STRANGE WAY it was like saying good-bye to an old friend who had finally succumbed to a long illness. You’re sad to see the person go, but you’re glad he or she is finally free. The thing is, this friend wasn’t dead, and had not been physically ill.

Lance was merely moving to Montana. The only thing sick about him is that he has spent the last 18 years of his life living and working in Colorado Springs, something I would equate to mental illness.
