Happy birthday….

January 17, 2009

Today would have been my brother’s 20th birthday, had he not died a year and a half ago. His second year of college, the end of his teens…I still think about him most days when something reminds me of him, though I don’t talk about him any more. Most of the time it still feels surreal, like this couldn’t have possibly happened. But it has, and so we try to cope.

Today I will be going up to Hearst Castle, something I’ve wanted to do for year, in an effort to do something. Though I know he and my parents will still be on my mind.

Happy birthday, I wish you were here for it.

    i think it’s good to think of him often and to celebrate his memory, because that is important. I hope you had a good day despite the marking of his passing.

    šŸ˜¦ I hope you had a good day at Hearst Castle. I’ve never been, but I heard it’s really cool. Thinking of you. I know this is tough.
