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!
