ENJOY THE DAY AND HAVE A BEAM 'N COKE!!
Hi Everybody or Anybody who happens upon this today. Its been a year - a long ass muthafuckin year!
This is Stephanie and Clifford and I thought we'd post up a few words in honor of Biddie, or Greg, or Death as he was known, on the day thats on his death certificate. I know in my heart
(cause of how we found stuff in his apartment) that the true day he left us was on the 9th, but I'll go w/ the paperwork thing that says the 11th.
Anyhew, like I said, its been a long ass year. We're doin' ok, making it along, but never forgetting. There are too many times when we just wanna pick up the phone to call or actually do but then realize he wont answer. My mother sometimes will say she saw a nice house for sale and for me to call Biddie and tell him about it. That was one of our things - she'd see a house, call me to call on it and I would - then call Biddie and tell him about it. Too bad my neighbor didnt get foreclosed on earlier!
The mother woman is not looking forward to her birthday next week but we'll make it thru that too. Shes stronger than she thinks she is and often thru the tears, we laugh hysterically about something Biddie would have done or would have said about something. During all this election shit, we often wonder what he would have blogged about. She misses her son terribly, some days more than others. She's strong in her faith and that gets her thru.
I want to say though, from Clifford and I, that again, we thank you for being a part of Biddies life and for helping us thru this time last year. We'll get thru today and the next week or so and be even stronger for it. We have memories and mementoes, thoughts and visions that keeps him "right here". We'll enjoy our day cause Biddie would want us to. I'm not a Beam drinker but you can bet yours or somebody elses ass I'll have something just as strong later in the day. Ya'll toast up w/ a few of 'em yourselves and enjoy the day.
We love ya!
Stephanie and Clifford
p.s. the monkey is sitting on my desk staring at me and his switch flippin days are over!
