But you aren't really gone, are you? You are here beside me, always have been. Always will be. And I feel you here. I felt you tonight at dinner with Bonnie and Dave. And you are here now. When we came home for cake, Dave said if you blow out the candles, he's outta there! Bonnie and Dave kept me laughing the whole time. I needed that. I needed them. I need you. I need light and joy and happiness. Love and laughter and bliss.
Happy Birthday, my love. We honor you with our love. You were the most amazing man to walk this earth. I shall never love another like you. I shall raise a black Russian to you tonight. In your honor. For eternity, I am yours.
Happy Birthday Chip!!!
With all my love.
