At one time he was her best friend. For a short time, they almost became lovers. But always they had a bond stronger than any family ties they could have had. As she drove on the highway headed into the mountains he was heavily on her mind. He had always promised to show her the mountain for the first time. He said he wanted to see her face when she drank in the majestic vision. I guess he was keeping his promise in a way. The only problem was she was going to say goodbye to him at his funeral.
