Thoughts & Prayers

Gary and I lost a beloved friend. Raines could light up a room just by grinning at us. His laughter was even better. We were unlikely friends but we loved him just the same. We met Raines at Hope Lodge, Manhattan. A place to stay for people with serious cancer while they receive serious treatment. These are the fighters, the warriors, the ones who refuse to give up because they have a chance. Somehow my husband Gary (who had t-cell lymphoma) and I just came together with Alice and Raines. Just a chat in our shared kitchen/dining room. Listening to Alice’s wonderful advice on how to cope. One day Raines threw a complicated joke our way, I threw it back. He laughed his butt off. It was always great to hear Raines laugh, to listen to his brilliant wit. I could never keep up with him. But we were officially a foursome. Saving seats for one another, sharing germ-free pizzas. Raines would listen for hours about my husband’s career as a former police psychologist. And he just talked. Like good friends. Gosh, we are going to miss him, his wit and the light he brought with him. Everywhere.
