Drew's day

We decided a bit ago to call the anniversary of Drew's death, Drew's day. It worked better for us than saying the rather long phrase the anniversary of Drew's death or the angelversary which didn't work for us.

So it's Drew's day. We dropped Meg off at preschool and have been to the cemetery. We'll take Meg there later and bring flowers and probably balloons if Meg comes with us to the florist shop.

Then we'll go for Mexican and eat avocados which were his favorite food in his honor. It is the best ritual we've come up with so far. That and looking at old pictures.

So here are some pictures.


  1. I hope that yesterday, Drew's day, passed as peacefully for you and your family as it possibly could. That you enjoyed your special avocado.

    The photographs are just lovely. Drew's smile in that top photograph is so bright, it seems to beam out of my computer screen. And VERY intent on his phone call in the second one, he looks like he is striking some sort of major business deal.

    I just don't have the words. I'm sorry that you are missing your son and I will be thinking of you, your husband and Meg over these coming days. xo

  2. Sending love to you and your family. Drew's day sounds just right. What a bright spirit he is in the photos.
