I volunteered to go to the home of my old boyfriend and father of my daughter when I heard that he had been found dead in his home. His sister was ill and my daughter was hours away. So I waited in my car as they put his body in the hearse. When I was waiting a red cardinal appeared in the little tree in front of me. As the hearse pulled away he flew away. This man had had a difficult 5 months following an accident. I saw the flight as a symbol of his ultimate freedom without the limitations of his earthly body. Farewell old love.
