SB 10.47.64
sri-suka uvaca
atha gopir anuj├▒apya
 yasodam nandam eva ca
gopan amantrya dasarho
 yasyann aruruhe ratham

Translation:
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Uddhava, the descendant of Dasarha, then took permission to leave from the gopis and from mother Yasoda and Nanda Maharaja. He bade farewell to all the cowherd men and, about to depart, mounted his chariot.


SB 10.47.65
tam nirgatam samasadya
 nanopayana-panayah
nandadayo ’nuragena
 pravocann asru-locanah

Translation:
As Uddhava was about to leave, Nanda and the others approached him bearing various items of worship. With tears in their eyes they addressed him as follows.

Purport:
Srila Jiva Gosvami points out that Nanda and the cowherd men did not approach Uddhava as a formality, but rather out of spontaneous affection for a dear friend of Krsna’s.
