In a Beautiful Gathering – We Remember Buckley

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018, the Northern Virginia Mid-Atlantic Chapter met at Tall Oaks Assisted Living in Reston, VA to remember our colleague Buckley Fricker. It was a lovely gathering of colleagues from her practice, fellow colleagues from the chapter and colleagues from throughout the area. Tall Oaks provided their beautiful accommodations and delicious food. We ate, we toasted her – with her favorite red wine – and some provided their memories, and their thoughts that helped us grieve. It was a beautiful event, one that we are not likely to forget. Vanessa Bishop read a poem:

The Day You Left Us

Lily Hernandez-Black

The day you left us was heartbreak and sorrow.

The day you left us we saw no tomorrow.

The day you left us we didn’t understand.

The day you left us God had you by the hand.

The day you left us your family came together.

The day you left us we remember you forever.
