A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

Newlyweds Erin and Frank with Suzie and Matthew.
Best friends from college.

Matthew and Suzie drove down from Greensboro late Monday. We all joined their friends from college, Frank and Erin, for a delightful dinner at a great Vietnamese restaurant. Frank then ran next door to buy a round of sinfully divine pistachio Baklava for all of us! Yum!

Frank will always have a special place in our hearts as he once saved Matthew's life. When the kids were in college, he drove over an hour to Charlotte every night and then back home again, helping Matthew get through the excruciating 6-hour chemo infusions he had to undergo. Frank never left his side, encouraging him and feeding him ice chips when his father and I just could not bear it. Someone who has that kind of strength to do something so difficult and selfless is my version of a true hero. We'll never forget it.
