Tony's Birthday
« on: July 20, 2010, 09:05:25 AM »
Today is the second birthday that my brother has missed with his family. 

I miss him.  But he lives on in my heart.  Today seems to be worse than his angel date.

All I can say is, "hang in there" and know that others are (I am) thinking about you.  Take care of yourself.

Terry,

I read your message with tears in my eyes. Last night I was thinking of you and looking at a picture of my father when he came to the UK to visit us couple of years prior to his departure (I lost him five years ago). As you mentioned, we always chose to love and pay the price for it. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had the choice to love or not, but I believe if we always chose to love therefore this is not a matter of choice any more. We love and accept the consequences.
Many thanks for your heart filling and warm words. I do not deserve all this kindness. I hug you from the bottom of my heart and wish you all the best in this world. I do not comprehend the meaning and reason of our existence but I deeply believe that you deserve all the love and happiness.

Just know that you are in my thoughts.

Mansour

Thank you Terry and Scott!

Terry ~ how is your father doing?  I sent you a PM the other day....did you get it?
No, I don't really have anything planned.....maybe a nice dinner in his honor.  It kind of seems like everyone except my mother "forgot", but I know better, no one forgot, I guess this year, we (my family) will be "to each his own" for Tony's birthday.

Scott ~ good to see you post.  How are you doing?

Mansour ~ Terry is a special lady, isn't she?  She brings to much to everyone's lives she touches here, and I am sure in her day to day life.  Terry, you provide a friendship that is rarely found amongest "strangers".  But we are no longer strangers, are we?  We are part of a webhealing family that Tom has created and you are a large part of what keeps some people going.  I can always count on you for a beautiful, thoughtful word when I need it.
