A friend died Saturday
His name is Carl. He and his wife (who died a few years ago) each lived a long life.
I am sadder than I might be because I had not heard from him for many months, and I now have learned he was ill in the hospital for a time, and then
was in a nursing home for a while after that (the hope had been that he would recover his strength so he could go home again). I would have visited
him if I had known. It's understandable that he didn't call me (I live some distance away, and I'm not a relative).
I had just been thinking about him because his phone number and address are in the pocket notebook that I found last week. I had in mind to visit
him, not knowing that he was no longer at his home.
