Happy Valentine’s Day…

We met this morning for a fancy breakfast.

Me, my sister Amye, my sister Andrea, and Angelica-my sister in law.

We were all united in love through my brother Johnny.

He would have been 40 today. Valentine’s Day never fit anyone better.

He has been gone 10 years. Sometimes getting together makes his absence so clear.

But today we celebrated his presence. Long overdue.

His iguana named Elvis. His cartwheel. His hating to be woke up. His love for giving presents. His walks through the house singing.


I sent out Valentine’s this week. I have decided that I will remember him through sharing love-small notes and simple joys.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Happy birthday brother.
