All In The Family...
Jay is back in town for a month, and he is visiting at our house for a couple of days.
Isaac has known Jay since they were in first grade together. They went through five years of elementary school and two years of middle school, side by side, best friend, close as brothers.
Then Jay's parents divorced. Jay and his brother went with their dad to the West Coast to live, and the path the two boys had been walking together ended abruptly.
Every summer since they moved away, Jay and his brother have come back for a month to stay with their mom. The first time Jay came back, Isaac was worried that they wouldn't know what to say to each other. He didn't have to worry -- it wasn't a problem.
They'll both be high school seniors next year, and after high school everything will change again. I hope that as adults they'll continue their friendship. In life, you need some people whom you can ask, "Remember when--?" and they remember.
