Today is the my grandfather's birthday. He passed away on April 15th of this year. So, my mom, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and I went to the cemetery to put flowers on his mausoleum crypt thing. I'm not sure what the "correct" terminology to use. Anyway, we sang Happy Birthday & reminisced. It wasn't a complete little shindig without my mother bringing a tiny bottle of gin to wedge in the flower pot. lol. (It was an inside joke).
We got a chance to laugh & joke and make light of the situation. Death is not a fun event, but birthdays should be. Therefore, we had fun. I'm sure my Papa is in Heaven dancing and drinking. Although I wish we could see him again. However, my family is throwing a little get-together to celebrate his birthday here on Earth, but I can't make it because I live a few cities over & I have class de la manana & gas sucks lol.
Although he is now deceased, I still love him always and forever and I hope his birthday in Heaven is SPECTACULAR!
