Caroline made a beautiful card for Elyse...
This is what she wrote...
I will miss very much all of the times I had with you. I'm happy we both have I Pods so that we can email each other.
I know you will make lots of new friends. But I hope you will always remember me.
The last half hour of the party was heart-wrenching. So many tears, sobs, hugs.
Caroline cried and cried after we left. I cuddled with her in bed, and we talked about how they could keep in touch through email, skype and facetime. That is just what they have done, and it is so very sweet. Maybe someday we'll even go to visit them.
