Testament

by | Sep 28, 2010 | 0 comments

There’s still a buzz going on on Facebook about Dan’s concert last night.  But please no one else tell me I must feel wonderful about what an impact he had.  Of course, it is a testament to Dan more than anything- more than any amount of work people put into it or the artists who played- it speaks of him.  But I don’t feel wonderful.  If he was 80 when he died and this tribute was played for him, I would still be a grieving widow, and it would still be hard.  But he was 33.  We had been married six years and have a daughter- nothing is wonderful about it.
