On gaining a friendship



Kelly J. Niederhauser


Kelly and I are friends because we choose to be friends.  
We were not always such friends.  
We went to school together from K-12 and most often did not get along.  
We grew into friendship as adults. 



Elder Niederhauser and Nancy Hoffman Hing


 Kelley opened up our friendship when we were both on our missions. 
 Kelley wrote me a lovely letter which I cherish. 


Only now as an adult do I understand 
how I caused  this difficulty between us. 

I am grateful that he accepted my friendship.  
I learned much from Kelly.

Know that I truly love 
Kelley and will continue to mourn his departure 
until we meet again.
