Michael has been gone now 3 years 2 months and 7 days .
I am just now turning his phone off because he is never going to call me again. I am lucky that I was such a hoarder because I have all manner of notes “Lumberyard. Back soon” that made up the little pieces of our lives. Sometimes I will run across a pack of Marleboros and just get furious because he promised me he quit smoking….and then I think of the sins of omission.
