A few days ago my kids and I were going through Steve’s stuff and found lots and lots of coins. I didn’t know he had so many! We decided to take them to the bank and cash them in. In the spirit of fun we had a contest: Whoever guessed how much money the coins were worth got to select a restaurant for dinner. We would use the coin money to pay for the food.  Well, Pepper won and we went to the Buca di Beppo Italian restaurant and had a wonderful time. There were about 10 of us (grandkids came) and the server asked us if it was a special occasion. Pepper told her we were celebrating Steve. I was very touched by that. We continue to do well and are focusing on being happy for him. We’ll see what happens. Grief is a mysterious, unpredictable companion. By the way, I found two more jars of coins today!

  1. Hi Glenda, I am sure Steve is smiling down from heaven as you found the coins and went to a great restaurant to celebrate his life. Everyone looks so happy! You are right about grief; you never know when it’s going to get you. But, it’s part of life and death and we all have to go through it at some time. How you handle it, that’s the most important thing. I try to live to be true to myself and the way Greg would be proud of me; that I continued to live and do well for our family!

    • An ever creative way of remembering Steve!

      Yes…grief is very individual and comes in waves……sometimes with the situation of Steve, the grieving starts before the inevitable end. Glad to hear that Pepper is hanging in there.
