Steve died on Thursday, Feburary 23rd, 1984. His mother’s birthday is February 25th. Of course, upon the news of his passing, she left her home to meet with family and friends in the hometown where Steve grew up and where funeral arrangements were to be begin. The funeral took place the following week and Steve’s mom returned home a few days later.
Upon her return she began going through the mail that had gathered during her absence. And, there, among the bills and junk, and numerous sympathy cards and letters was an envelope addressed from Steve. It was a card. Wishing her a happy birthday.
Now go out there and do your best. Be honest with yourself and others. Send cards, texts or emails to family and friends. Sooner rather than later. Because you just never know.
