hugs

Dear Marybeth, Theo, & Miles,

I hope today you can remember that silly face Alan made when he played with his dear boys. Do you know the one I'm talking about?  I could try an impression, but I wouldn't do it justice. That silly face could turn a pout, or even a tantrum, into a giggle fest. That is the face I remember when I think of Alan.  I loved how it made all three of you smile.


Hugs, love, and a box of kleenex to all of you.  I love you.
Alan Bachman

Oh Sara, I started crying with the first sentence. I've been wondering when the first anniversary would be. I think about your sister and her boys quite a lot. Especially when I see a runner out on the road. Hugs to them all. He sounds wonderful. It's just not fair.

Thanks Sara. I try to make his funny faces sometimes, and I don't do them justice either but the boys smile. We used to laugh so much, though. I miss that. He made my life so good, and I miss him so much.
