I look at the pictures scattered around the computer and I see him smiling in so many different scenarios and I wonder how much would he have changed in appearance? Probably not that much and I know that laugh, that big, powerful laugh would be the same.
I probably would have planned a party for his big 6-0.
Instead I’ll go to the canal and send out a few words into the breeze and send up a “Happy Birthday balloon” and feel like I’ve felt for the last seven birthdays he’s been gone.
If you’re in the mood to remember the man who began this wonderful community raise a glass in his memory or enjoy a piece of cake with extra frosting!!
And listen carefully, you just might hear that big, booming laugh too!
Happy Birthday Leroy
