Well, it’s been three years now since you died. This is probably going to be the last year I’ll write to you on the date of your death. From now on, I’d rather celebrate the anniversary of your birth, and your life. I think of you often, and I’d rather not dwell on the cancer, the hospice room, and the sadness. I don’t believe you would have wanted that from any of us. I will, however, always remember those beautiful sunflowers.
