Death of a friend

My neighbor is dying. He is an old, old man who endured much physical pain in the very laborious world of pouring concrete. I saw that the family had gathered over there, and I wanted to go speak to them, but I didn't really want to go be a bother, either.
The old man put field corn out in his yard for the deer. I grabbed a bag that was about 1/4 full of field corn and walked over with it. I dumped field corn all over the yard in piles. I'm sure the deer had a field day with it. I don't know that any of the family took time to look for the deer or not, but they all were aware that I was doing something that their Dad loved to do. This was my way of giving him a send off.
I was invited to go visit him one last time. He will surely pass away tonight. In my final words to him I told him of a good friend from home who died about 10 years ago. I hope he will look him up and they will talk about me. Is it totally nuts to think you can arrange for two old coots to have coffee together when they get to heaven? I think not.
