Dear Robin, Thank you for sharing your story about Ron’s birthday. I’m planning something similar for Steve’s birthday, which is 9 days after the day of his death. I’m relieved to know that so many people who are grieving are also trying to celebrate the life they had and the love they shared. It makes me feel less alone to read all of these stories. I still miss Steve like crazy, and I particularly dislike days like this, when I feel incredibly alone in my life. Your wonderful remembrance of Ron also makes me feel less crazy for trying to find joy in memories despite the incredible pain of loss. Thank you! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Deborah A.
