Happy Birthday, JT

Happy Birthday, JT.  I think of you every day.  You were always so good at remembering other people’s birthdays.

Smoke House Birthday Group, August 17th, 2016

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.
