The year of first is coming to an end. The first Halloween, the first Thanksgiving, the first Christmas the first New Year’s… they all have been hard.
Today it’s your first birthday since you have died. I hope today you are having your strawberry cake with strawberry frosting, your Route 44 lemon lime slush with extra fruit and anything else that you want for your birthday.
I’m sure mom is up there celebrating with you.
Even though you could press my buttons and give the silent treatment like nobody else, you are my little brother miss you so much. Sometimes it feels like it’s been a long time since you’ve been gone and then there’s other times when it feels like it happened yesterday.
So today I will try my hardest to remember all the fun and happy memories.
Happy Birthday, Brother.
Your Birthday should be a happy day
full of laughter, fun and presents
You Birthday should be joyful
not something I resent.
Your Birthday is a sad day
tears always fall.
Your Birthday is of memories
of days I can recall.
Now you are with the angels
full of laughter and love
Now you are with our Lord
smiling down from above.
Happy Birthday Brother

The other day I heard this song and I can’t get it out of my head.
“All of Me” (1984) by Julio Iglesias and Diana Ross.
This was one of the first CD I brought. There were a lot of good songs on Julio’s CD, 1100 Bel Air Place.
I think I like it because I would love to have someone sing to me like Julio!

Do you ever read something and feel really old after you did?
Here is one I just read.
Twenty-five years ago on July 5, the world was introduced to “Blossom,” a TV show starring Mayim Bialik as the titular character.
The show started Mayim Bialik, Joey Lawrence, Michael Stoyanov, Jenna von Oÿ, David Lascher, Barnard Hughes, Finola Hughes, Courtney Chase and Ted Wass.
The theme song, “My Opinionation” performed by Dr. John, is one of my Top 10 TV Theme Songs.
I wish I was a little like Blossom when I was young. But I was never that cool to pull off her style.
Weird, how all the shows grow up watching still bring up find memories.
