It's done. The house officially belongs to someone else. And it was not unpleasant.
We signed on the lines, removed our keys from our rings and shook hands. The table laughed, shared stories and parted ways. "R" is full of the energy of someone young, yet sensible enough to understand he has some work cut out for him. He looked like a close relative of Matt Damon; boyish charm without the confidence of Hollywood. As lovely an experience as one could have wished for, under the circumstances.
Good luck R. May you make many happy memories amongst friends and family in your new home.
