Today would have been Rand’s 45th birthday. He was born in 1967; ten years before me and one year after my sister. Also just 10 days before Love’s brother. Funny how things connect like that sometimes. We lost him far too soon on March 13, 2010.
Of course, as the date drew closer, I started thinking about him a lot. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny. Two years gone is in so many ways a mere blink of an eye, and yet in others, it seems so long ago. Sometimes I think of things he would have liked or things I’m sad he missed, or things I know he would have been part of. That’s always the worst part of grief; the sad remembrance that life just moves on without your lost loved ones. Those moments that never will be ever again.
July 30, 1967 – March 13, 2010
