    a good friend

    I lost a friend on Jan. 28. It reaffirms my belief that there are angels in Rutland. Despina Louras was my friend from practically the beginning of my residence in Rutland more than 15 years ago.

    Her birthday was Oct. 31, and she told me she was a witch, but we both knew that God lets good spirits return to earth on All Saints Day and All Hallows Eve.

    Every morning Despina would walk from her home on Church Street to her son Peterís business on West Street, Initial Ideas. I would join her many mornings to walk downtown.

    So I believe in angels and firmly believe Despina has joined the chorus of angels that watch over this valley and keep it from harm.
