Memorial to Annette

Farewell , Annette, dear friend,

I will miss you terribly but will keep close in my heart the memories of being with you—the shopping trips, the lunches in WLA, going for sushi; eating oysters at SM Fish Co.  I‘ll miss the book and movie discussions and above all, the exchanges about adoption and our social work profession .

Your open- hearted kindness and generosity in letting me stay with you whenever I blew into town from Chicago I shall never forget. You were my rock after Paul died, helping me to find a life of my own. My friendship with you began at Vista Del Mar almost fifty years ago when Paul introduced me to the staff on the eve of our wedding. It has been a long, memorable life’s journey with you and my life is enriched because of your presence and love.

This is my good-bye to you but your memory will live in my heart forever.  Frances Chikahisa
