Those of you who have followed my Enjoy Estes Park Blog for years know “Manny,” my good friend from back east. He loved reading my Blog and commented eloquently every day.
And then he got sick and was in the hospital for a while last spring. He has since moved to a new assisted living home in Massachusetts.
I spoke to him a couple of days ago and he had a hard time remembering me but… as soon as I mentioned my Dad and how we used to drive up and take him out to lunch, he remembered my Dad and me! He loved my Dad and they had a great time together. He was thrilled that we have moved to Cape Cod because that is where we met him about 18 years ago, at the Audubon Bird Sanctuary in Wellfleet.
So, Manny is doing well. He is a bit forgetful at times and can’t quite master the computer like he used to but… he lives only 10 minutes away from my daughter, so I know I will see him again! It was so great to get back in touch with him. He truly is a special person.
This is the photograph I took one year ago when my Dad and I were out to lunch with him.

Mel, How wonderful for you to reconnect with a special friend. Glad you’re patient about his not remembering you at first…it’s difficult to be in your position. My Dad went through that & forgot my name.
Hope you get a number of good visits with Manny.
Best wishes, Kimberly
Thanks, Kimberly. It’s great just to talk with him again!
Thanks so much for the update! Tell him all of your followers miss his jovial comments!
Erin, I told him much everyone on the blog misses him and his wonderful comments!
