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.
