Writing Challenge #19: Tribute to Steve

"Friendship is one mind in two bodies." --Menclus

My Friend: Steve, a professor from England

How we became friends: He was a patient of mine. Steve never thought he would have to have an operation in a country far from his until he suffered from an acute abdominal condition when he taught in a university of China. He said it was my English that helped him decide to undergo surgery in another county.

Why we stayed friends: When he was in hospital, he found that I was not only a professional doctor, but also a very nice person. After he was discharged from hospital, he began to write to me. And we have corresponded regularly and been friends since.

My friend's best qualities: nice, knowledgeable, talented, considerate, sympathetic

Why my friend is like family: He liked my son and taught him English. He was always there whenever my son had some questions for him.

Friendship Highlight: When he was travelling in mainland China, he kept me informed of where he was and what he found was interesting.

The last time I saw my friend we: When he last visited China in 2005.

My note:

Dear Steve,

Greetings from MyEC. How are you, my friend? I apologize for taking so long to write to you again, but I've been very busy at the hospital, and you have probably known that I'm a voluntary moderator now for my. englishclub. com. I hope everything is going well for you and your family.

I'm taking a writing challenge - this message is part of it and also a tribute to you.

Take care,

PS: Sorry for failing to upload a photo here!

Thanks amal!

Steve encouraged me to learn English. I like his English - beautiful. Unfortunately, I lost contact with him. It was my fault, though. If only he saw this blog!

Hi Karenina,

Thanks for your comment. I thought I should include a photo of Steve to make the tribute perfect but failed to do so. Maybe I could upload one in the near future. Thanks again!

See you,

Hmm, yeah, juan!

I met my friend Steve just 'by chance'. We were lucky to meet each other, even though that was the hardest time for Steve who suffered from 'acute abdomen' in another country far from his own.

We meet our friends by chance, by choice we stayed friends with them
