“Another dreadful April, George–forty-two years after the first one”

Well, there are no words sufficient to express the depression April brings. George you are so missed—more each year! I always wish that I could have known you and could have helped you to be happy.
A phrase from the song “All the Things You Are” tells us where you are now, George: “You are the angel glow that lights a star”. Actually, the lyrics of the song best expresses my feelings for you, George.

You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song

You are the angel glow that lights a star
The dearest things I know are what you are
Some day my happy arms will hold you
And some day I’ll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine.

There are many videos on YouTube with different people singing this song. I prefer Ella Fitzgerald, myself. I listen to her sing this while I am looking at a photo of you, George and I am transported to a different dimension!
There is nothing more to say during this saddest of months except “George, you are still in my heart, still much missed, and still much loved”

My next post about you, George, will be on a happy note.
