It came in Messenger, a short note saying, “So happy to Friend you on Facebook. You boys were so young when I last saw you and my two were little…” It was sent from Christine Ann Schwarzrock on 1/18/2017. What a re-connection. For a few minutes, my forehead shrunk and hair turned brown again as my mind’s eye returned once again to Riverdale, North Dakota where Chris had been Mom’s (Kay Lowe) best friend. In her late 20’s at the time, she decorated our family’s existence with a most wonderful and lively presence. Though I was off in the Air Force guarding the country, my visits and phone calls home always included something about Chris. I guess you’d call her Mom’s sidekick; a just-down-the-block neighbor who’s liveliness and joy of life was infectious. On my visits home, she’d drop by and there’d be excited conversation of normal things brought to life in the full colors of optimism and spiced with a liveliness only Chris could project. She was such a dear friend to Mom and so missed when, in 1981, my parents moved to Barranquilla, Colombia. As the distance in miles and time increased, we lost contact but never forgot her…of the hundreds of people we had known, she held a place in the memory we’d occasionally dig out of the attic for conversation, always with warm thoughts of her antics and humorous situations. Like when she stirred the whipping cream so much it started turning to butter (“Kay, I’ve got these little lumps in my whipped cream…”). Upon re-discovering us through Facebook, I immediately communicated Mom’s phone number to Chris and, well, they re-started where they left off. Now late 60’s and late 70’s, Chris and Mom acted like there was no thirty-something-year gap between them. That’s the way friends are…a bit of a mystery but illustrated a bit in this quote: “Why did you do all this for me?' he asked. 'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.” ? E.B. White, Charlotte's Web Finally, on 2/26/2017 I got a message saying “I am a woman of God.” Great news and a great insurance policy I am so glad to know she invested in. Because, we can feel confident in the promise of Jesus Christ as pointed out here in John 14:3: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
