My sweet handsome Son.. Two year ago today, you woke up happy, smiling, picking on me.. By evening, my heart and world was shattered. Im still just as broken as the moment I found out. Only now, my screams are on the inside, or alone in the car. I will never understand. Never get the answer to "Why??"

I keep bumping up against memories. I keep looking for you, only to be crushed again by your absence. Everything is different now - especially the future. Whatever significant event takes place, you won’t be there. You won’t be present at marriages, graduations, or births. None of those milestones for you. No grandbabies for me. Anniversaries, holidays, and birthdays will all come and go without you there. Any plans made that you were a part of are no more. Your passing seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. Its effects reach into every part of life and into every facet of the future. I guess I’m not only grieving what was and is, but also what would have been.

I miss and love you every day. One day I'll see your sweet face again, when it's my turn to go to Heaven. Mommy loves you.
