"I was thinking about you today.  There are so many people who miss you.  I think of you daily but usually find it difficult to write.  Little Taylor turned 9 without you today.  I know you were there regardless.  You are always with us as we gather.  You will always be missed.  I am sure you have seen your picture in Jay's room and Tay's desk.  You are never forgotten.  She is getting so big and you would have been dancing all over the place today with her.  You would have made us all smile and laugh.  I love and miss you and just wanted you to know.  Kisses and hugs.  By the way, Skye is right, you would love Katelynn. She is adorable and you would be so proud of Skye, she's a great mom.  I think Katelynn is her Barbie doll.  That child has more clothes than anyone I know.  She has a very sweet temperment.  You'd love her.  Of course, you loved everyone and never judged anyone!"

"Hi Jord! I'd like to start with saying I miss you like crazy. I have this beautiful baby girl, her name is Katelynn. You'd love her. She's perfect in every way just like you. Sometimes it kills me to think she'll never get to meet you. But I promise to tell her everyday about you. Every memory. I wish you could meet her though and watch her grow, even teach her a thing or two, but I know you're not only watching over me but her now also. I love you always."

"Thoughts of you...everyone misses you terribly.  The pain your family has endured is heartbreaking. May all who loved you carry your joy, whimsical innocence, and wanderlust in their hearts and spread your love, genuineness, and kindness. It's good to remember "almost everyone carries bags of cement..." and we should take care of one another instead of weighing the bags as to prove who suffers most.  

A poem by Edward Hirsch after losing his son:

I did not know the work of mourning
Is like carrying a bag of cement
Up a mountain at night

The mountaintop is not in sight
Because there is no mountaintop
Poor Sisyphus grief

I did not know I would struggle
Through a ragged underbrush
Without an upward path

Look closely and you will see
Almost everyone carrying bags
Of cement on their shoulders
That’s why it takes courage
To get out of bed in the morning

~ Edward Hirsch"

Not until I see you again.
