Shadows and Sun

My old friend. I miss you. Just wanted you to know (as if you didn’t) that it was a lovely night. Not that it wasn’t bittersweet – it was. But there was joy. Real joy. And laughter that came from the heart.
The kids are beautiful. Your son so much like you! A blur of activity and loving the energy. We were all proud but he barely knew. One day he will remember. And the little one! She laughed and danced, so graceful and beautiful, sun on a bright spring morning.
We did our best. Talked and toasted, told the old stories, drank a bit, felt the years. We took pleasure and comfort in each other’s company. But we needed you there. With one of your great lines, your deep chuckle and incredible zest for life. It is diminished, not as bright, but it lives on. In family and friends and spirit and silence. In shadows and sun.
