A Sad Farewell

My Dad and Bozena at the airport saying goodbye.

Last Wednesday my dad had to say goodbye to his caregiver for the past year and a half. You see her son is getting married and Bozena and her husband, Emil are returning to Slovakia for the wedding. They will be unable to return unless they can secure new visas. Last Saturday we all went out for a farewell dinner. My father said he'd was going to miss their bedtime routine as they would call out to each other:

"Goodnight Bozena"
"Goodnight Johnny"
"Bozena I Love You"
"I Love You Johnny"

(The "z" in Bozena is pronounced like a "j". If you look closely you can see the little Teddy Bear that David snatched up as we left and gave to Bozena as a gift and she tied it onto her pocket book.)
