Today, you would have turned 104 years in this place. It's a strange world, at the moment. I still miss you, I never stopped missing you. One truly never gets over loss, you just learn to continue on with this missing part of yourself. That being said, you've truly left me. Just as the ones we love are never truly gone, as long we they are in our heads and our hearts. The story goes on.
Somewhere, I know that there's a Town Pump in the sky, and you and Mary are heading out there for a drink and a dance. All your buddies are there. The pain of the past is gone. There is only good to come.
Happy birthday, wherever you are tonight, from your ol' kid.
