The goodbye potluck
Just know this. At the Kresse family good-bye potluck there was a very poignant moment. It wasn't when Greta's dad Kevin gave an emotional speech about the unexpected deep friendships they had made here. It wasn't when Bridget was too emotional to speak. It wasn't when the girls wouldn't let go or when her twin brother Julian's friends could barely stand to get into their car. It wasn't how cute first graders Roman and Caoimhe's little sister Ariana are when he acts like a whipped husband and she acts like an annoyed wife.  It was when Julian looked up at F and said, "And you, scarecrow, I think I shall miss you most of all."
