Dear John

I wish you a happy birthday. Thinking of you today it has dawned on me that it is impossible for you to not have a happy birthday. Nothing bad will ever touch you again. The sun will never be too hot. The nights will never be too long. Death has no more sting. There is no pain and no shame. As C.S. Lewis said "School is over and the holidays have begun" I wish you a happy birthday anyway.

I thought you would also like to know, I have ate all the cashews out of the mixed nuts. I am now working on the almonds.

I really really liked the cashew nut part of this post. Dear Christine, John knows all your little habits and is smiling just as I am now!
Big hug,

I can only imagine how difficult this month has been, with his birthday and now this.
My thoughts are with you my friend.

Many hugs.
