Sorry I had to leave in such a sudden way, but I had a friend to say “Ruby
Faye”. I need you to know I didn’t have time to call anyone or even say “Good-Bye”. For this friend of mine was in a hurry, so I didn’t even try. I knew you would understand, because that’s the way you are. Don’t worry about distance, because it’s really not that far. Don’t wait up and please don’t cry; besides I’m not telling you “Good-Bye”.
