Right before Tony turned 50 I wanted to throw him a big party.  He would have nothing to do with it, even with me being pretty convincing!  He said he would compromise and that for his 55th birthday, I could have the biggest party for him.

Today he would have been 55.  I think he somehow knew he wasn’t going to be here for it, and that’s why he compromised with me.  Another first in this year without him, his first birthday I won’t cook him a special dinner. 

I think I sent this video to Tony’s Mom and Dad last year, but they have new phones, so I uploaded this video to youtube.  He’s just being his goofy self!  I never would have thought in a million years after taking this video that he’d be gone just 71 days later.  I don’t really know what I would have done differently had I known it was his last birthday?

I miss you more than words can ever write.  But I hope up in heaven you are having grey goose on the rocks with a fine cigar.  Happy Birthday my Love!
