Today is the 8th year since you left us my beautiful son. I miss you so much and long to see you again. Remembering your wonderful light. You were our shining star. And still are the best of us. I am asking God to give us just what our hearts need to comfort & strengthen us through the grief, pain, tears & sorrow we carry today & every day without you. So many memories of love that we share. There was no time to say goodbye. No time to tell you how much we love you. Our hearts are broken into a million pieces. I know that God prepared a special place for you & we will see you again. Your children and your grandchildren have your great spirit within them. I see and hear so much of you through them.

Another Year Has Gone By My Beautiful, Amazing Son. Today would have been your 56th Birthday! We shared 48 Happy Birthdays and all those years together so long ago now. Oh what a time it was. I Miss You So Much! 1961 was the beginning of our journey together here on earth. We will see each other again & what a wonderful reunion that will be. I remember how you loved to take your speed boat out on the lakes and go fishing. When you were only five yrs. old you used to swim the length of our swimming pool underwater. As a young adventurous little boy you rode your three wheeler like the wind, over trails with your friends. When you were around eight yrs. old you had your very own bunny rabbit in a cage you kept in your room so he would be close to you. Of course in the 1960's, G.I. Joe was the popular toy with all the kids, and you were always playing with them, fighting the battle for the good guys.When you were only nine months old you and I flew on a big airplane to Washington D.C. We stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and the Capital. When you were a teen ager you & I flew to Hawaii, you would go swimming in the ocean there & go to the rain forest to see birds of paradise. Night times, we watched fire dancers on the beach. Your favorite shoe of choice, the high top converse. tees, anything psychedelic, your favorite singing group, the Beatles. From a very young age we had to call you Paul just because he was your favorite. Your personality was so great! You were off the charts! You could ride a unicycle perfectly at 14 yrs. of age.You Married at 19 yrs. old! A Father at twenty! Somehow I now believe you knew you had no time to waste,so on with the business of living! Life is precious, life is short. Three Fabulous Children, Four Gorgeous Grand-Children, a family & friends who loved you beyond measure, and still do. (we love you madly!) Forever & Always. I send you all my love on your special day, I only wish we were spending it together like old times. Love & Prayers, Mom xo I thank you for all the blessings you have given us.
