Family gathering today. Just to be together, and also to celebrate his birthday of November 28th, honor, and share the loss of Brad.
I just wanted to tell you how much I wish you were here to celebrate your birthday. Not much is put up on this website anymore but you are still thought of and missed. Happy Birthday my Dear Son.
Happy Birthday Brad
I wish I could say it to you, living your life, with it being a real wish to you. I was awake at 2:28 a.m. remembering, missing you, as I do, we all do, every second.
I found a vegan stuffed turkey roll-you would have been happy.
That Thanksgiving/birthday dinner at South City diner with you and Emily still makes me smile and grin when I think of embarrassing you-no easy task!
Don't you miss his chuckle? Heh Heh Heh
Happy Birthday Brad. Of course that's surely ridiculous, to wish you a Happy Birthday, but how can I not? I still wish that for you. I still wish you were here in your solid human form.
Grieving stages be damned. There's still a part of me that believes its not true. That you will be here with a "Hey it's me" sometime. It's OK with me if I never really pass that. In the meantime, out into the universe - Happy Birthday Brad.
I Love You and I Like You
Hard week. Hard times.
Hard week, wish I could change it.
Happy Birthday Brad.
Life is not long, or short -it just is.
Brad's on a road trip to Seattle. He spent most of his ride on the dash so he can see the scenery and every once in a while I ask him "You really think you could have ridden your bike across country in this?". Maybe it's Brad giving me a nudge? But I have this sudden need to stand in Shorty's bar with him. It's a place he really had fun in and enjoyed friends, so we may try to go there. Part of Brad is going to rest in the mountains out there next to the pristine mountain stream.
