Because of you

Today is your birthday. So in honor of your birthday, some things that I learned from you.

Because of you, I learned to speak my mind more often.

Because of you, I learned to “call a spade a spade.”

Because of you, I learned to be a loveable asshole

Because of you, I learned to stick up for what I believe in.

Because of you, I tell my loved ones that I love them more often.

Because of you, I secretly root for the Yankees, Rangers and Giants when they’re not playing my teams.

Because of you, I have so many stories to tell not just my kids, but your daughter as well.

Because of you, Red Lobster will always be Red Blobster to me.

Because of you, I say words like, “bucka bucka, woozle wazle, and bastage.”

Because of you, calling someone a “trash bag” is an insult. (But a light hearted one.)

Because of you, I never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Because of you, I drink less.

Because of you, I eat healthier.

Because of you, Lehigh Zion Cemetery is a must stop for my family when visiting the Lehigh Valley.

Because of you, my life has a hole in it that will never be filled.

Happy Birthday David. I sure do miss you.
