These women, the visitors and the visited, could talk! And laugh. Oh, could they laugh! I saw that in many ways the depth of their love for one another could be tied to the great expanse of time they have been walking life together. I'll just say nearly three quarters of a century. That's a long time. I so richly enjoyed sitting in their presence for an afternoon. It was an honor to be welcomed into their friendships. Then, of course, in the very last moment as we all parted, the image that showed the love in that room. Photo © copyright by Paul Hassell.
