When Marisa died, it started a long chain of solitary ‘firsts’.

Our first Christmas without Marisa, the first New Year’s, Jacoba’s birthday, Marisa’s mom and dad’s birthday, and now the start of the baseball season.

Marisa and I love the Blue Jays.  Just last season, Zekijah went to more Blue Jay games than both my parents combined in their whole life.  The Blue Jays had their opening day today against the hated Yankee’s.

The game was rained out.

I thought that was fitting.
