Summoned, we gathered.
Full timers. Part timers. Long timers.
And all of us now short-timers being scattered to the winds.
Co-workers. Dear friends. Long ago lunch companions. The barely recognized. Complete strangers.
Some just a familiar name and a mug shot.
Because we never got together like this before.
But, on this day, we were all the same.
Proud to have been once a part of something grand, something special, something we shall never see again.
Something we are sad to see dismantled with so little care.
