I hope you have the happiest of birthdays amongst your fellow angels. I thought of you as I was running this evening, running in zigzags up and down the hill to avoid piles of ice, snow, and slush. It reminded me of all the times we would zigzag up the long, steep driveway in your cool red car blaring “If I had $1,000,000” by the Barenaked Ladies. I can’t help but smile every time I think of that, and every time that song comes on the radio. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to run my first ever marathon in your honor, and I know you’ll be smiling down on me, all 26.2 miles of it.
With love from your cousin,
