Richard regularly cautioned me against saying goodbye. Saying goodbye is so final.
One morning as I was stepping out the front door to run errands, Stephen said, “never say goodbye.” I froze where I stood in the doorway. Stephen had never said that before and he didn’t know that Richard said it to me. I remembered Richard’s words and I wondered why I was hearing the same warning from Stephen.
Richard loved the following song by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman and I think of both Richard and Stephen when I hear it.
Time to Say Goodbye
