It’s two years today since Howard died, leaving a huge hole in our lives and our hearts.
I miss him even more since I moved back to Los Angeles, where we lived during the 13 years of our marriage.
So many things remind me of him; I constantly wish I could call and tell him something.
I finally took his name off my phone; but if I could talk to him, here’s 12 random things I would tell him:
#1. You were right about driving a Lexus.
#2. It turns out I actually like living in LA. And so does V. Go figure.
#3. Even without your patronage, Costco has managed to survive.
#4. You were right about buying Apple. I wish I had listened.
#5. Alli is even more organized than you were, if that’s even possible.
#6. Kron’s Chocolate is back in Los Angeles and so is the telegram you saved for 35 years, safe in my freezer.
#7. I channel you every time I have to deal with insurance companies, technical support, or customer service.
#8. You were right about law school. Daniel is halfway through.
#9. Possibly I miss you the most when I rent a car or buy airline tickets and I know you would find a better deal.
#10. I’m living 5 minutes from your sister; and every time I see her, we swap Howard stories.
#11. By telling Howard stories, you still make us laugh even when you’re not here.
#12. You would be ridiculously proud of our kids. I’m sure they know that. I feel the pride and love for both of us.
