Thank you all for coming. I’m Lily. I was married to Gordon for almost 30 years. We didn’t make it the whole 30 and for a long time, I considered myself a failure because of that. But Gordon didn’t. A few years after our divorce, I wanted to apologize for things not working out. He just smiled and said: “Lily, what the hell are you talking about? We achieved something together that neither one of us could have done on our own.” Our sons. Harvey and Marcus. When Gordon was on the road, he would call home six times a day to check on them. “Did they eat enough dinner? Had they done homework? How many points did Marcus score? Did Harvey get his tux for the prom?” Gordon was proud of a lot of things in his life, but none of it compared to how proud he was of them.

cotton candy: three places you want to travel to?
- west coast of the US, ideally on a road trip from the top to the bottom. - russia (st. petersburg, moscow, of course, but i’d like to travel the trans-siberian railway too for kicks) - egypt (alexandria & cairo mainly)
bonus points for rome and barcelona, both places i have been to when i was a wee lass and would dearly like to return to someday.
