Happy Birthday my angel. It is so hard to believe you would have been 31 years old today. My arms still ache to hold you close and kiss your sweet face. I pray you and Papa are having wonderful times together and I know you are both happy and free of pain. I love & miss you both so much. It is my prayer to be with you both one day. Hugs & Kisses my sweet grandson. You are always close in my heart.

My angel 10 years ago today you left us to be with Jesus. We still miss you so much. I know you are happy and no longer suffer and I am thankful for that. I know that Papa is so happy to at last have you in his arms again and that you and he are having a grand time. I bet you both enjoyed the beautiful song your Mom sang for you in Church yesterday. We had a lot of tear filled eyes. You are still remembered and loved by so many and your family will love you always. We carry you in our hearts and always will. One day Nana. is going to join you and Papa and we will have a grand reunion. You and Papa give each other a hug & kiss for me. Love you forever.

My darling, I am a little late for your birthday, but I thought about you. I wrote on your other site as did your mom. Jason sent you wishes too and said he loved you. You got a lot of wishes on facebook. Everyone still misses you so much. Lil Sam talks about you so much. I know you didn't get to meet him. Andrea didn't have him tell after you went to be with Jesus. He talks to you and sings for you. He gets angry if anyone tells him he doesn't know you. He says I do so know my cousin Jon, he's in heaven with Jesus but he talks to me. He is seven years old now. He is real smart. Has a lot of your ways. Like you he loved Papa so much. He asked me if we could get on a space ship & go to heaven and visit Papa. He comes up with lots of things & ways of visiting. He is a mess. You and he would have been great buddies. Well baby I will say bye for now. I love & miss you so much as I do Papa. Give each other a hug. I long for the time when I will be with you and Papa. My heart aches for both of you.

Hi Baby, Had you on my mind. I miss you so much, no one will ever know just how much. I bet you and papa are celebrating being together. I know you were there waiting for him when he crossed over. I know the day is coming I will see you again. Until I get Home, I will continue to hold you in my heart. Love, Momma

Hi Baby, sorry it has been so long. You know you have been with me and I look forward to your visits and still love our chats. I know you know what is happening with papa & me. Ask Jesus to please bless papa and help him get better. If it's his will we pray he will continue to do well with his treatments and overcome this bad thing called cancer. We love & miss you so much.

Five years ago the angels took you to heaven to be with Jesus. Our hearts broke and the pain still is in our hearts. We miss you so very much but our memories of you are strong and bring us great comfort. We still hear your laughter and see your beautiful smile. One day we will be together again until then we will cherish the memories and love we shared.
