      Thanks, Heather. But if you’re trying to get more cookies out of this…

    Fuck yeah, Allison. And I say this knowing full well that Bill wouldn’t bat an eyelash at it. I miss your dad, too, and also share with you the sense of miracle it is that Anthony came to you the way that he did, on the coat tails of your pop leaving this place and bringing that little gnome/imp/muppet darling behind.

    Happy birthday, Anthony. I miss you, Bill. I’m grateful to have been around for some of your wild years. And my love to you all.

    Crying. So beautiful, Al. Anyone who knows you knows how much you loved your dad.

      Thanks Annie D. Do you know that this day is when I think of him the most?! Sorry I made you cry, but I know you get it…

    This really captures your fathers legacy.

    Well done!

      Thanks Ted. I think he would’ve gotten a kick out of Anthony, he’s wild.

    I’m happy to have known him, Al. I love everything about this post. Happy birthday Anthony. Love to you all.

      He loved you Amy, and he brought up camp stories with you in them more often than you’d think…love to you all too.
