HAPPY 49th BIRTHDAY today to Dan in Heaven!!! I thought of him the minute I woke up. I hope he's enjoying a huge slice of birthday cake. As a matter of fact, I bought a slice of vegan cake- actually, two- one for myself and one I dropped off at Snap's house- in his honor. I'm not sure he would have been thrilled with the chocolate-mint vegan cake (it was just o.k.!), but it is the idea that counts. I had a very interesting "thing" happen today- I was thinking about the fact that when I wrote Dan's obit, I did it in letter form...it began "Dear Dan..." and was very easy to write when I thought about it being a letter to him. So late this afternoon I was thinking how cool it would be to write and send a postcard to Dan in Heaven...I googled "Postcards from Heaven" for fun and came up with a website advertising a book...and then really got a shiver (of the good kind) down my spine when I read the name on the photo/banner on top of the website, which began: "Dear Dan"!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of those meant-to-be types of moments. I'm going to order the book from Amazon. I already tried to reserve it online from the library, but they didn't have it. I think this will be one book I'll want to own, anyhow. Happy Birthday, Dan. We love you!
