Dr. Arnold Coleman drove the silver colored SUV into the slick coated parking lot of Brookside Funeral Home. He got out and started walking through the wet leaves and small amount of snow toward the front door. He was sad because Cheryl Andersen was the best nurse he had ever worked with and was also a good friend.
Dr. Coleman walked into the building and picked up a small bulletin that talked about Cheryl's life. He waited in line for a while and then eventually walked into the area where Cheryl's family were greeting people. He recognized Cheryl's sister from conversations he had with her.
" Thank you for coming Dr. Coleman" Claudine Andersen said as she hugged the doctor.
" I'm sorry for your loss" the doctor said with tears in his eyes. " She was a great nurse and a good friend". He walked up to the closed casket, cried a little and walked back to leave.
" Oh, Dr. Coleman" Claudine said as she pressed a note into his hand. " Before she died, she asked me to give this to you".
Dr. Coleman walked outside into the brisk and wet weather and sat down at a table that was by the front door. The note simply said ' thank you for the opportunity to be your nurse and your friend'. He left the parking lot of that funeral home with joy in his heart and a renewed sense of hope.

Nice SHORT entry. :o) I liked it and wished that you had expanded on the nurse and doctor's prior relationship a little more. I definitely wanted to know more about them. I will say I was a little let down by the nurse's note. Of course I wanted it to be a note that would result in the doctor's spiritual conversion (don't we all like "happy endings"), but it's possible one or both of them was already a Christian (??), so some of those unanswered questions left me a little unsettled, but I still liked what you DID write. :o) Kudos to you!

This was pretty nice. I also wish it could have been expanded some to show the relations between characters. But good job!
