Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you…

Today is the 85th birthday of the author, Robert Cormier, the primary interest in my life after missing people. I’ve been his most devoted fan since the age of twelve, and continue to proselytize his books to everyone I know. He was truly a great man and the world needs more people like him. I used to call him on his birthday to wish him a good one. But he died when I was fifteen.

So happy birthday to you, Bob. I hope you’re enjoying it, wherever it is you happen to be.
