As some of you may have noticed I haven’t written a blog since March. A close family member of mine passed away and was/ still is a huge shock to our family. Since the news of his passing, life has been…..off. Tweaked if you will, wrong, dull, un-inspiring, heart-wrenching and at times even hard to breathe. Even now this is still hard to put into words, which is why I haven’t blogged. Till now.
I don’t want to focus on how his life came to an end, but instead how we was loved and how he loved others. A wonderful father, son, brother, fiance, friend and of course, cousin. Loved by all who knew him, his laughter, humor, smile and strong hugs were always awaiting you. Cheers to you Bud!
The memories I have of our childhood are even better. Lip-syncing at birthday parties, getting fiber glass from the surf-board we found on the side of the house,( good times), rocking out to “Pour Some Sugar on Me” every time it came on MTV. Trying desperately to dance like Michael Jackson when “Beat It” came on. Tons of family gatherings, birthday parties, inside jokes, (NEVERMIND), more family parties, graduations, weddings, children and of course Monterey. Our home away from home.
A life full of good memories. I will cherish those always! Love you Bud.
