good bye

This weekend, my very nice friend Heidi married a nice Norwegian man named Morton. They are moving to Norway today. The wedding was lovely. They make a very nice couple. Everyone smiled and was happy. Heidi's new family is lovely and kind. She will be very happy.
I think.
I also think it is going to be very hard for Heidi and her sister, Greta, to be so far apart. How do you say 'good bye' to someone you have spent your whole life with? They have traveled together and lived together and worked together... for a long time they joked that they were the 'spinster sisters.' Now, Heidi is part of a Nice Norwegian Couple and Greta is living in her half of a lovely Victorian duplex. Alone.
Olivia and Nora are very worried that Greta will be sad. We will work hard to cheer her up if she feels lonely.

With friends like you, Greta is going to be just fine...most of the time!
