In the beginning, Simon wondered why Jim kept Sandburg around. The answer was "I need him."

In the middle days, amidst laughter and pain, the answer grew to "he's my partner, he's my friend."

And somewhere along the way ... "it's about family."

But then Simon watched as a challenger arose, fracturing those bonds. "It's about trust; it's about anger." And he wondered if he was seeing the end.

And nearly "it's about death."

Afterwards ... tentatively ... "it's about healing." But they faltered as seeming betrayal tore open unhealed wounds.

Darkness. Choices. And finally, forgiveness.

"It's about friendship." It always has been.
