Because the Holidays is a time for families & friends to get together & rejoice in the love and respect they feel for each other - it is also a time when we tend to remember our friends & loved ones who are no longer with us.
It is important for our completeness that we remember those times that we did spend with our departed, and hold them in spirit. In our family we have a tradition by which we place a special ornament on the tree which serves as a reminder of Michael. Because he is always in our hearts & never far from our minds it is natural to remember the special holidays that we spent together.
Once again, Ricky was kind enough to deliver my gift to Tiger this year & placed a call to me when he was there. It was a sweet thing to do and it was a wonderful moment when her voice came down the line in California. Ricky is a good friend & although I wish I could give her my gift in person, he was the perfect proxy & I am indebted to him for creating this special pathway to my niece.
