I miss you John..This time last year I spent Thanksgiving with you at the hospital. Me and you laughing at tv shows and eating the plates that were brought to us from Mom's.
I listened to Alice's Restaurant today in your memory while I cooked for Mom and the kids. You know that song is so annoying. But it is really funny. I couldn't listen to The City of New Orleans and maintain any kind of composure, so I didn't listen to that one..Nights without you are harder than I ever imagined they would be. Holidays without you are almost impossible.

Who could forget you and Dad's run to IGA every holiday because me and Mom would forget something at the store.

And who could forget Dad trying to poison everyone with the turkey every year by his cooking methods. Elizabeth and I were talking about that today. How when she was little she thought everybody was supposed to get sick at Thanksgiving because of how Dad always got us sick with his turkey. I am glad you started cooking the turkey after you found out what Dad was doing. LoL We laughed a good while over that one today..

And I thought of how we worked like a well oiled machine together. Me making pies and bread and you doing the turkey. How we balanced each other out. You were missed today and you are missed everyday.. We thought of the happy times today with you..And no holiday will ever be the same without you.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
