Happy birthday my friend

Happy birthday my friend

I can't believe its been almost a year....I can't tell you how much I miss you..How I still look at my phone every night before I go to bed...How many times in the past ten months I've wanted to talk to you...to let you be your normal selfless self and let me talk about my problems while you are always so reluctant to talk about your own...I've wanted to see that gleam in your eye...that bulldog tenacity...I think you would have had some fun here lately....I think about laughing at that silly "B" cup and then how you used it...how you were thinking and praying for me when you had so much else to be thinking about..i have a picture of you on my desk and it would really make you mad...because you don't have any hair...you've got that cute sailor hat on...but you don't look sick..you look determined, steadfast, peaceful...I also have a post-it from you taped to the back of that picture...it says " Thanks! See you soon...love you bunches!!!" Thanks my friend for the years of friendship..I love you bunches too...and yes I will see you soon! Your journey to holiness is now realized...you have fought the fight and finished the race. Happy birthday...the first one you've gotten to celebrate "face to face"... I miss you terribly but I know you are whole and complete. I'll see you when I get home.

Thank you for sharing this. Yes, we, too will be HOME soon. What a joy to know.
