In Memory of Carol Lee

Today Mom called to tell me that a few days ago my Aunt Carol Lee had passed away. I knew her most of my life since she lived with her Mom who lived next to Nana (my Mom's mom). She enjoyed drawing and painting and would often show me her new creations.

To quote J. Michael Straczynski:

The more important and intimate the emotion the fewer words are required to express it.

For instance in dating - Will you go out with me - 6 words
Think I care about you - 5 words
You matter to me - 4 words
I love you - 3 words
Marry me - 2 words

What's left? What is the one most intimate word you can say to someone.
It is goodbye.

To Aunt Carol Lee I say Goodbye.
