Over 30 years ago, Sherry and I bought our home on Franktown Road in Washoe Valley, Nevada. The previous owners had the cutest little girl who cried as her family packed their final truck load and pulled out of the drive. She yelled out the back window, “Goodbye, Sally! I love you!”
Weeks later, in the far corner of our dusty 10-acre plot, I spotted a large gray rock with “Sally” painted on it in bold, childlike letters.
That little girl must be close to 40 by now, maybe a teacher or an accountant or a veterinarian or a mom with girls of her own.
I’d like her to know that her Sally is still remembered. I keep her gray rock dusted off, just as she had placed it there so many years ago, and those faint, yellow letters are still detectable for all to celebrate her love for her pal.
