Happy Birthday, JT. I think of you every day. You were always so good at remembering other people’s birthdays.
This marks a year since I was last with you. You gathered a few of us together at the Smoke House in Burbank for your birthday. That was a fun group and a fun time.
Sometimes when I think of you, I momentarily forget you are gone, and then my heart sinks as I remember. It feels like being dropped into a deep, dark hole. I routinely imagine how you would react or comment on a particular news item or an extraordinary moment in a film or TV show. It’s still difficult to believe I can’t just get you on the phone whenever I want.
Alternatively, I’ve begun to see how you live-on when I look into the eyes of others who knew and loved you. I miss you terribly but your spirit survives within me and others. You are like a brother to me. I’ll never forget you and will continue to renew JohnTravers.com for as long as I live.
