Friday, 6/18/2010: I stopped at Indian Wells to pick up a dinner for later. John and Joan pulled up at the same time. He introduced himself as a friend of Tom's, since kindergarten, and also a coworker for 20 or 30 years. They invited me to sit down with them while I waited for my take out dinner. It was sooooo nice to talk to these wonderful people! They had questions for me, and they confirmed what Tom told me in his last hour that we talked. I think we all felt good after. An hour after I left, the emotions came out. What a great way to start out a long weekend!
