I smiled. "I know what it's like to make a mess of things, and Billy's been there for me many times through the years. I'm happy to help.""You're a good friend." The clear implication: better than Billy deserved.She stuck around to watch while we finished up, and it was clear she was delighted with the result.Diane died a few weeks later. At the funeral her husband told Billy how much she enjoyed sitting out in the yard while she was still able to leave her bed. She commented several times how glad she was Billy had gotten everything cleaned up.You may be wondering, did he keep up the garden? No, he didn't. Diane was right; he ruined everything. A case could be made that Billy is a terrible neighbor, but I think there's an equally persuasive argument to be made that he's one of the best.Next: Billy's approach to housekeepingMore: The Unsung Power of a Good Neighbor
