More than 30 years ago I was set up for a blind date.
For a 'Debs'! (Prom night!)
It was my one and only blind date.
But with a lady.
I remember it just for that reason, and because it was with a most delightful, and shy girl, T.K.
I myself was a very shy guy, so how we got through the night I don't know.
(Two young kids, tongue tied, on a most formal night!)
But we did, and we had fun.
We never dated after that night, but we did become friends.
For 30 years we would 'pass paths' as we say here.
We lived quite close to each other, and quite often had a drink together in the various local pubs.
And often had a laugh about 'that night'!
T.K. passed away yesterday after her second battle with cancer.
And it was quite a thump in my chest.
She was 46, young, quiet, a lady.
Cancer is such a bitch!
(Big Sis is gone six months today.)
I will remember you as the tall, elegant, quiet lady you were T.K.
