My title, of course, is the title of one of the songs from the soundtrack of the cult classic, “Pink Floyd: The Wall”, and, like the song from the movie, sort of describes how I’m feeling at this moment. Although the song itself can be described as from a loner’s persepective, it really is a testament to my feelings at this time; as the song says, “How should I complete the wall?” The answer, however, lies in seeing the following true facts.
On this date, four years ago, my late mother-in-law left this earth. Notwithstanding, the fact that I’ve lost a big piece of my life in my brother, the empty spaces in the title are filled by the innumerable memories I have of those two. Together, there were no more rabid Yankee fans and now they’re partying with Babe Ruth (traitor LOL) and Phil Rizzuto (who, oddly enough, I saw on Phil Rizzuto day with my brother…that was Tom Seaver’s 300th win…awesome day…), and all the great rock-n-roll stars of their time.
Although, to be brutally honest, the memories will last far beyond human comprehension and, in that, I take solace in the fact that we’re still honoring them by remembering the great times that we were all a part of…and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
The music and the memories that remain are priceless and the most cherishable gifts that they have left us…Heineken’s and screwdrivers up…
