Happy Happy Birthday... I watched 12 hit and I couldn't hold back. I thought it would get easier in time, I'm still waiting! Thank you for all the cues letting me know you're not far. Next time you visit my dreams I need you to stay longer we have some catching up to do!

I almost made it without a tear.....but nope.....tried to stay busy ...nope.....tried to stay off Facebook uh uh...still caught up to me. I honestly had to pull back from coming on here as much because for so long i felt stuck in my grief...like i cant move forward. But I'm getting better....Ayla is not giving me a choice with her lil busy self. I thank God for her and i love reflecting on our memories....but it still hurts......I really thought i had a few things figured out,....nope, gotta start over. I love you big head! My Grammie is up there now.....give her a hug from us!! "Cutiful"

Posted by Christina Parent on 1st August 2016
I've decided that EVERY year on your birthday we'll kick it up a notch. We've done cake and ice cream but now we'll incorporate something "new"....so Ayla's getting her ears pierced. :) I hope you can see her, hear me..... something.....we love and miss you. This is so hard......
Posted by Christina Parent on 30th July 2016
Almost your birthday.... Thinking of you always
Posted by Christina Parent on 27th July 2016
I hope you are seeing this little girl. Your twin, the older she gets ...the more you come through. Makes me happy and sad at the same time,.... She loves to sing and dance and she's funny....very smart. She has your quick wit..... Good things are happening, wish you were here to be a part of it. We love you.

Happy Father's Day. We love you, miss you and wish you were here.....

Still missing you.....thinking of you.......you should be here.....
Posted by Christina Parent on 8th May 2016
Still holding on to the cards and poems you gave me...missing that call...you gave me the GREATEST GIFT. We miss and love you.
Posted by Christina Parent on 8th April 2016
Ayla is so funny, she's very smart and has a very determined spirit. If she gets into trouble, she calls for her Daddy...I guess to get me into trouble. I just tell her again Daddy went to heaven and we can't see him. She gets really sad, so she seems to understand. I don't want her upset or sad, but I have to explain why she doesn't see you. She see's all the Dad's at school and says she wants hers....I just tell her I want Daddy too and I'm sorry. We love you, miss you and wish you were here.
Posted by Christina Parent on 4th April 2016
I'm not sure what God's plan is...I feel confused and lost. Just gotta keep praying. I love you and I miss you.
Posted by Christina Parent on 18th March 2016
I really hate coming here.....not seeing you is unreal. I feel so robbed. Ayla still knows you and asks for you....you're with us....I just hate our future is gone.... I love you Ahija.
Posted by Christina Parent on 15th March 2016
We will love you always.....
Posted by Christina Parent on 20th January 2016
This has been a long year..... I'll never stop thinking of you.... I just wish the sadness will subside a bit ;)
Posted by Christina Parent on 12th January 2016
She's been asking for you.... Breaks my heart. :(
Posted by Christina Parent on 31st December 2015
Gonna miss getting that call. Happy New Year!!! Hope you're resting peacefully & watching over us!!

Thanksgiving was weird of course, apart of me was just waiting for you to pop up somewhere & I wanted my sweet potatoe pie from Astoria.... I have yet to set foot anywhere near Greektown.....I don't know why my brain won't accept your gone.... I'm just still waiting...... I don't know on what though.... I feel like I'm still on the verge of breaking down....I don't know if I'm still bottling up my emotions....I've cried, and cried but I can't let go. it's not time yet i guess..... you're still apart of my thoughts everyday & Ayla and I speak about you all the time. She sees your picture and says "My Daddy".... so she knows you.....
Posted by Christina Parent on 9th November 2015
Still struggling....I can't believe I'll never see you again. I keep thinking how unfair it was, for you to be taken away like that. I don't know if it would've been easier losing you to an illness, or whatever.... But to just in an instant realize that you're gone forever. It's so unfair. What am I going to tell our daughter? She knows you're her Daddy and that you're in Heaven, but as she gets older....how am I going to explain what happened. Why it happened? I just don't have the words. When I think what life would've been like 5, 10yrs from now, it just breaks my heart. I think about what I have in both of my parents and it devastates me that Ayla wont have that. The coolest, most handsome Dad....I'll do my best to ensure she knows you.... She'll be able to look in mirror and see you. I'm teaching her how to pray, so she'll hear you.....our Guardian Angel...
Posted by Christina Parent on 26th October 2015
miss hearing your voice
Posted by Christina Parent on 21st October 2015
Not a day goes by that your not thought of..... Ayla is looking more and more like you. She's extremely smart - she has your quick wit. She loves her movies, like you did. And an extremely picky eater.... Lol. I have the best reminder of you in this little girl. I miss and love you.
Posted by Christina Parent on 13th September 2015
Sitting here watching a movie....and scrolling through my phone.....you hated that.....would always threaten to cut the movie off to make me put my phone down lol....it worked, for about 30mins lol
Posted by Christina Parent on 12th September 2015
another dream.... love seeing you, but I wake up extremely sad. I love you.
Posted by Christina Parent on 3rd September 2015
I still feel so lost, I can't talk to anyone, no one understands..all those times you thanked me for taking care of our baby, reassuring me I was still beautiful after having her, and just listening.....you would just listen to me go on and on...good or bad.... I don't have that outlet anymore... so i am feeling so heavy, everyday... Ayla constantly says Daddy.....I keep asking her does she talk to you and see you, she just smiles.....she knows you're in Heaven...It breaks my heart seeing her acknowledge her class mates Dads... people say she is too young to know, but she does..she's growing beautifully..anyway, i miss my friend..I miss her Dad

I'm deeply sadden to hear my homie is gone. We go back from the 90's clubbin and Greektown, Floods etc. Man a real cool laid back guy.. It's hard to believe it. Just seen him in January visiting home (Detroit) He came out his way to come over to speak to me. I seen him creeping over lol.... I remember both of us bust out laughing.. That's how I last remembered him.. Damn a good brother left here for a better place R.I. H.. God bless his kids/mother and family. ..
Posted by Viola Slone on 22nd May 2015
Christina thank you so much for this i am sure he is smiling from heaven at you for this LOVE you and Ayla and thanks for making me tear up again
Posted by Christina Parent on 10th May 2015
I almost made it through this day, I stayed busy but not getting that call still hurts. When we were getting home, Ayla ran away from me and out into the street. All I could think about was losing her too. My life would be over. Please watch over her, over us. It still feels so unreal, but days like this is a very painful reminder. love always

*tears*
Posted by Christina Parent on 9th April 2015
Yesterday was 2 months since you've been gone... Even the simplest things creates a painful reminder that you're no longer here. Last month when I was home for my birthday, outside of my dinner party, there was nothing I did or anywhere I went that we hadn't done together at some point...even down to getting my nails done... Honestly being home just hurts, it'll never be the same. I hope you're resting well. xoxoxo
