I recently found out that a woman I went to high school with died a while back. We weren't BFFs, but I really enjoyed spending time with her. Both of her parents were deaf, so she had a good command of sign language. She'd put on some music and dance while signing the words. It was truly beautiful. A bit like a hula dance. She was such a great person.

One time, when I was more depressed than usual, my mom put some tiny flowers in a tiny antique bottle she'd found. The bottle was embossed with the word, "Smile." I still smile when I look at that little bottle.

My dad was always trying to keep me smiling and seeing the lighter side of life. When I had relationship troubles he would acknowledge what I said and then tell me about what my mother was saying to him. He always made me feel that we were in some kind of club together where we were both going through hard times, but it was all part of life. His smile was a comfort to me.

Thanks jaynedough for starting this memory chain!

Thanks for posting this, especially today! It would've been my dad's birthday today and I miss him so much!

My sister, before she died, became closer to me. I know that it's because she was suffering and had no one else, and I'm happy I could've been there for her. It's like it came full circle because we were really close for a while, and then we grew apart, and then we came together again, albeit through texts and calls long-distance. I feel like at least I have something.

I always struggled with math. When I was in second grade, my mom bought math flash cards and worked with me daily to get my math skills up. But I think the best math lesson she taught me was figuring out percentages off at department store sales. She loved a bargain.

My friend, Scott, was amazingly talented. He was a master woodcrafter. He taught himself how play many musical instruments. He could play a song after listening to it. I'll never forget him playing a Beatles tune on a thumb drum.

His funeral was attended by such a diverse crowd of people. There were poetry readings, music and scripture readings. There was an urn for his ashes that was made out of a toolbox. Scott would've enjoyed just about every moment of that service.

My cousin would stick up for me when were kids, he was smart, interesting to talk to and intrigued by life. Why did addiction and possibly anti social personality disorder have to take him away.

My dad was awesome and he could fix almost anything around the house. He loved to sail and when I was kid I loved trips to the beach on Sundays to sail.
