For the last 8 years, Halloween has been my most favorite holiday. Chance and I use to dress up in our costumes and go trick or treating on the Upper Westside, turning heads, posing for pictures all the while having a great time. So, this Halloween is going to be hard for me. I am missing my partner in crime. My +1. My friend.
To be honest, this is the first holiday without him and I am not sure how I am going to handle it. Right now I am aware of the impending day and there are some people who did not know he passed away so when I get the text asking “What are you and Chance going to be this year?” it kinda opens up the wound all over again.
What I do know for sure is that he made me very happy and we made other people happy as well. We had a mailing list of about 125 people who would receive our holiday cards. That’s 125 lives we touched. Recently, I was told that people looked forward to our cards, anxiously awaiting what creative costume Chance and I came up with. People looked forward to them. People smiled because of him. That warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face because in our own little way we touched someone’s life in a positive way.
This year is going to be difficult but I am still going to dress up. I love Halloween because of Chance so I will dress up, have a drink of champagne and then go out and trick or treat for him.
