New Unveiling Date - October 24

Just a quick note to let you know that I'm changing the unveiling date to accommodae my school schedule. I know Adrienne would understand. It'll be on Sunday, October 24. I'll post details as soon as I get confirmation from the rabbi.

I'm not sure who's still reading. I haven't felt like posting much. Everytime I think about it and log in, I can't figure out what to write. Adrienne's birthday is coming up this week and I'm not sure how I'll deal with it. Daniel's on his way here right now and his birthday is the day after Adrienne's. It used to be such a happy time. They had so many wonderful birthdays over the years.

I finished my class and got an A. Wow. The last session was on Death and Dying and I chose not to go. Unless you've been through this, I don't think you can know what it's like and I don't like crying in front of people that I don't know well. Over the years, we've known many people who lost a child and I never pretended to understand what they were going through. I just tried to be there for them. People who are many years out tell me that their pain is just as deep. Perhaps they have fewer tears and get through the days better, but the pain never lessens. Most people just don't know what to say to me, even family. It seems like they just want me to move on though I'm not sure what that means. I like talking about Adrienne and remembering so many good times we had together but a lot of people are uncomfortable talking about her, like somehow it's contagious. I's not.
