Look, Ma, No Hands! - Hanau Bird Sanctuary - Germany - May 1979 - Age 3
It's hard for me to think about this trip to Hanau to see our dear friends, the Fackrells. Lili was one of my best friends. Now, both she and her husband Jim are dead, far too early, and so is Leif. Little did we all know that happy day in May 1979, at the park with our four children. Of the eight of us laughing and playing on that day, five are left.
Life is a fragile and priceless gift. Leif, too, was a fragile and priceless gift, it seems, no matter what a tall, imposing presence he became.
