2013 has arrived. You would have been proud of our neighborhood. They kept up their tradition of fireworks long after midnight. I thought about calling to complain in honor of you but then figured what the hell. Let it be! This past year has been quite a challenge. Lots of regrets but I am learning to let them go. I know I wasn't a very good sport when you'd beat me at 5 card rummy. I really did enjoy playing though! No matter how mad we got at each other, we were always able to make up. I have no regrets of loving you. We enjoyed life to it's fullest; camping, going to the 'Y", eating out (usually at Henry's), reading, listening to jazz, watching movies, playing euchre, wizards, attending art openings & much more. I still do these things, holding you in my heart. You still get posts on facebook. It touches my heart to read that I am not the only one that misses you. Missing you but cherishing the memories.
