Margaret and Peg sat with their grandchildren, Daniel, Christina, Joshua, Ella, Blake, and Audrey waiting at a cafe in town for their husbands to join them after their game of golf. The two always had fun together, and enjoyed spending time with their grandkids. They were having such a wonderful time Margaret hadn't noticed the rather sickly woman walk into the cafe, but the woman immediately noticed Margaret and walked over to her.


"Hello Carlye how have you been?"

"I've been well, thank you."

"That's good."

"I see you everyday with Hawk and I see how truly happy the two of you are. You know I've changed a lot, and I see have you really haven't changed at all well except your hair color is it's natural honey brown and you look about twenty years younger, probably due to the work you've had done."

As Carlye said that Margaret became extremely self- conscious touching her hair and her face and then she retorted, "Be that as it may, I'm glad to hear you've changed and I hope you're happy."

"I remarried thirty years ago, and I have five wonderful children, and eight grandchildren. I see you have a few yourself."

"These are our daughter's children. Our son B.J. also has six."

"Wow! You must be really proud; well I just wanted to say hi. And though it's taken me years to realize this, but I'm glad the two of you have found happiness with each other. I only wish the best for you two. It was nice seeing you."

"Goodbye Carlye and thank you."

"Goodbye Margaret and tell Hawk I said Goodbye."

With that Carlye Breslyin Peterson walked out of the cafe with her carryout order in hand and went home to her family. Knowing she was dying she wanted to make her peace. She had succumbed to the cancer later the night.
