Happy birthday, MFM!

The husband and I will be headed out to Tucson in about 2 hours to celebrate your birthday with a girly drink! I still wish I hadn't waited this long. You should be pretty proud of yourself for making me confront my social anxiety.

Miss you.

We all knew that there were so many people that couldn't make it, but wanted to be there. One of these days, maybe we can set something in motion to get together in a more central location. My birthday is in November.

I still think of him and I have to say, the shock really has not worn off. It just does not seem real to me that he is not here.

Thank you for your tribute. And enjoy your drinks!

I've lost several friends over the past few years that I didn't get the chance to say good-bye to. No real closure, so there's always that weird hope that the phone will ring, or I'll get an email. I was still expecting to see a post from MFM pop up.

I enjoyed the barrage of posts that we use to receive which would get me rolling on the floor laughing.

Although I've only been here for a couple of months, I was a lurker for years. He was the funniest poster I have ever seen. He is deeply missed. RIP.

All that attention and love. What a powerful spirit.

That wasn't much of a 'girly' drink though...holy crap. The husband and I needed a nap about 10 minutes after we left the restaurant.

Kali, thank you so much for everything. I can't tell you how much it meant to not just me, but the husband.

in MFM's honor (well, several actually) and kept my pants on

As long as they keep making girlie drinks and giving tag team sponge baths, MFM will be in my thoughts.
