Deb....I'm sending a hug to you today.  It's sad (at least for me) that all happy joyous occasions are tinged with sadness because Ken can't be here to celebrate with us.  Knowing that he's still with us and happy for us doesn't quite do the trick.  Perhaps at some point in the future, your grandson can make visiting the ballparks a memorial trip for his grandpa....maybe even with his own son some day.  Make sure Fenway Park is on his list.

My sister and her family have always lived with my parents so my nieces lived with their grandparents who were very involved in their lives.  One of them was 15 when my father passed away in July 2018 and on his last day in the ICU with all of us (I have 4 siblings) gathered with him, that niece was so distraught and crying about "who's going to do this with me now, who's going to that with me now".  One of those things was watching all the ballgames together and talking about the Red Sox.  I really feel for your grandson and I'm sorry for the pain he's in.

I hope today is a better day

Dear Deborah ...  Such a sad story and you said the only words you could.  We just miss our loved one and what could have been so it's good to have a cry the both of you.  Is there any way possible that you could take your grandson and perhaps his mother along with you to at least see one good baseball game?  I think your grandson would love it!  I know sports are shut-down right now, but not forever and you can promise your grandson as soon as the virus issue is over that's what you'll do.

Like you, I too just keep busy when Ernie's anniversary date comes up and it has gotten better, but he's always in my heart and I do think of the wonderful memories we had together.

Stay safe and take care.

Yesterday was the 3 year anniversary for me, I just kept busy and my mind off of it. Today was my grandsons 16th birthday, he and his mom lived with us his whole life and Greg had always told him when he got his license they were going on a road trip to visit as many baseball stadiums they could. he got his license today and while we were happy, him and I both had a cry over what wouldn't happen for him. Its sad to think of Greg not being here for these monumental moments. Tried to remind him his grandpa is watching but didn't really help either of us, such a tough things for kids to understand when we cant even understand it all.

HI Chicago...good to hear from you. Glad Rose dropped in for a visit. I think she was telling you she approves of your current lady

Chicago Beard ...  So happy you had that beautiful dream of your Rose.  I always feel they are visiting us every so often even if it's in our dreams and I'm sure that she is happy you're happy in your life.  You are one lucky man.

I haven't had any dreams of Ernie for several years although sometimes I feel he's close.
