Today is both a wonderful and sad day. It is my father's birthday (don't worry, Dad - I won't say the number, though you certainly don't look your age) and it is also the date of our dear friend Landon's passing, one year ago.
Happy birthday, Dad - I wouldn't be here without you! (Literally.) Celebrate with a Narragansett beer! Or three.
And Landon, we miss you. So much. It's just not the same without you.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend. Give your loved ones a hug. Life is short.
