“She is such a good listener,” Barbara said at dinner Tuesday night where the group of friends shared a bottle of wine.

Donna, across the table, replied, “Yes, she remembers everything you tell her.”

“I wonder where she is,” mused Rhonda.

“She never complains.  I tell her how to do something and then she does it better than me.  And this is the first time she has missed work in months,” said her boss on Thursday morning.
