How To Say Goodbye . . .

Friday I will say goodbye to a great friend and co-worker. I respect and admire her. And I am ecstatic that she is moving on to bigger and better things. (I am sad to see her go, too.) Saying goodbye is a universal human experience. Not surprisingly, every language has a word this experience . . .

Spanish: Adios
Portuguese: Adeus
French: Au Revoir
German: Auf Wiedersehen
English: Later . . . erm I mean . . . Goodbye

The word is often accompanied by a kiss, a hug, a card, a gift . . . . something. 
 
I'm not one to do what others do. I like to be original. I like my goodbye to conjure sweet memories.
