First photo: Wendy smiling at the park, basketball in hand, determined to make a shot. Mary remembered her friend shooting time and time again, with the ball clunking off the rim or the backboard (or missing altogether). However, the sheer joy on Wendy’s face when the ball dropped through was magic.
Second photo: Wendy at the table, working a jigsaw puzzle. While not large, the puzzle was complicated, and Mary doubted she could complete it herself. After trying what seemed like every possible combination, though, Wendy formed the full image and had a story to tell for days.
Third photo: Wendy laughing with her group of friends from school. Despite her differences, her classmates had taken her under their wing and been the greatest support she could ask for. Wendy focused on just being happy, but Mary knew how thankful both she and her friend were.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and Mary’s tears of happiness were confirmation. She was honored to be the friend of Wendy.
