I called my mom today to see how she was doing on this, the first anniversary of Gordy’s death. Turns out she’s throwing a party! Yes, ‘the gang’ is coming over for a baked potato bar, and this will mark the first time my mother has truly entertained since the summer before Gordy died. I’m sure there will be lots of tears and for sure some laughter, as no one in that group is NOT funny. I miss him, and have these photos to share with you as I remember him, too.
