Happy Birthday Frank


I just realized that today is Frank's birthday....the first one since he passed away in March while I was traveling.

It's been such an odd thing to have him just.....gone, since my return. After 17 years of caring for him, almost full time in the past year, and having him be such a huge part of my life, it's been weird adjusting to the fact that he's just not physically here now, like he was before I left.

Usually, people experience a death, then go to the funeral, then grieve until life eventually takes over.

But, since it happened while I was gone, it feels more like he just disappeared.


Well, wherever you are Frank, I hope you're happy and at peace. And, if they have horse racing in heaven, I hope you have a front row seat at every event!

You are missed.

The nice thing is that now Frank will spend time taking care of you. You are loved so much from the other side.

And Frank agrees with me that they never should have run Big Brown in the Belmont Stakes.

Thanks for that. With Frank there, I'm sure the other side has many more "colorful" metaphors being tossed around. =)
