When our friends Jerry and Shelia visited, Shelia took me aside to ask, “Does Pete worry about anything?”
“No,” I said.
She smiled. “He doesn’t have to, you take care of everything. He has no worries.”
I nodded and she gave me a hug. There was nothing more to say, and for effervescent, talkative Shelia, that in itself was saying a lot.
