Staying in Touch with Old Friends

Leisa Forbes worked at our firm for nearly 10 years before moving with her husband back to the Washington, D.C. area about five years ago. Since she left, we have kept in touch via e-mail, as well as teleconferencing.  You see, Leisa was also an important and well-loved member of a longstanding bible study I’ve been a part of since joining the firm.  So every Tuesday evening, when a small group meets here at the Wheeling office for bible study, Leisa calls into the office and we put her on speaker phone so she can participate in bible study.  Not as good as having her here in person, but it’s almost like she never left! Last weekend, another longtime friend and coworker, Becky Murphy, and I made our now traditional (two years and counting) trek to D.C. to spend the weekend with our best buddy Leisa.  What a great time we have catching her up with the friends and co-workers she misses, as well as planning our weekend together.  This year, Leisa daringly drove us into downtown D.C. where she works, just minutes from the White House.  After a quick tour of her metropolitan office, we set out on foot to see the sites.  We walked to the White House (it’s a lot smaller in person) and then we toured Smithsonian American Art Museum. The art museum is so big we hardly made a dent in it.   It was great!  So much to see, so little time.  Ten thousand steps later, we were ready to head home.  Our nation’s capital has so much to offer and most of it is free!  We’ve already made plans for our next visit – The Holocaust Museum, and the Corner Bakery!  Thanks Leisa for being such a wonderful hostess.
