A Last Goodbye
Friday Fictioneers Challenge
A complete story, beginning, middle, and end in 100 words. No more, hopefully no less.
I hit 100 exactly, having deleted 11 from my original. 100 words goes quickly!

He’d come to say goodbye. He didn’t realize how hard it would be. His family tells him it’s just a rollercoaster, in a derelict park slated for demolition.
“And past time, if you ask me,” his wife opines.
She doesn’t understand his ties to that ‘coaster. The hours spent as a teenager in the park. Why, his first job was sweeping up trash after they closed for the night! Talk about a dirty job.
Here he sits, by the hotdog place his grandkids love. At least the family still lives nearby. He’d hate to lose his past, and his future.
