    Adeus Dennis,
    We had some good times together. Our sometimes long and luxurious lunch conversations about culture, architecture, politics, and the magical powers of Portuguese wine and soup never really ended. Just postponed. Our discussions reflecting the aches and pains of getting old, today seem trivial. But we both knew that life had blessed us with the goods of family and friends.

    Dearest Old friend, you have no more burdens, no more worries, and no more pain. Adeus.
