Saying Goodbye

The worst part about May (at least till next year) is graduation. Every year a new group of freshly graduated dentist pack up and move away to destinations far away. We gather and say goodbye and wish them all well. In years past there we some sad goodbyes, but nothing that compares to this year. This year we say goodbye to the Johnsons, Andersons, Millers, and the Blooms. A few years ago they took pity on us as the only Members in our class and made us honorary members of theirs.
The first to leave have been the Johnsons. This was a tough goodbye mostly because our kids are such good friends, playing together everyday after school. We all walked over to Ritas and had a treat.
Jared and Isaac
Anna and Lexi
Audrey and London
After our little treat we walked home. Jared and Anna both cried and cried. The following day I found Anna sitting in her bed holding a picture of Lexi just looking at it with tears in her eyes. After picking up the kids from school Jared stayed in the car I went to check on him and he was crying. When I asked him what was wrong he answered, "I've been holding it in all day. I really miss Isaac" It has been a few days now and everyone is getting a little bit better (Even Kevin after saying by to his boyfriend Andy), but it still breaks my heart.
Fair well Johnsons we will miss you (Andersons Blooms Millers we will miss you too!)
Good luck to everyone!
