April 10th....

Fred passed last year on this day...
and I have been dreading this day for
a couple of weeks....
I keep having flashbacks of many of the things
that happened last year at this time....

Because they are so kind, helpful and supportive,
both Bren and Kelly have offered to be with me
on this day...
I wish Mike and Cindi, who have also been my angels,
could be with us, but since it's a weekday, they have
to be at work....
They will be with us in spirit, though.....

Bren and I will visit the DIA during the day
because I want to be somewhere that is peaceful, 
somewhere that I love and somewhere that makes
me happy.....
Kelly suggested that she, Ryan and the puggies
come over later in the day and we can light and 
release a 'Sky Lantern' in honor of Fred in the
evening...

(A sky lantern is similar to a little hot air balloon,
it has a fuel cell so that it is able to fly, it cannot
light anything on fire when it lands, it is biodegradable,
and it is made of a papery material, so we can write
on it)
I told Bren about the sky lantern, and she loved the
idea, so I asked her to join us...

We'll have dinner together before the lantern launch....
It will be a bittersweet day, for sure.....
But together, we will celebrate Fred....
R.I.P. Fred....we love you and miss you.....
