"Tomorrow  will be the saddest day for me.  I will try and make the best of it.  Tomorrow  will be 12 years that you were call home to heaven. And as I write these few words to comfort me in your memory..  
All I remembered  vividly  the call I had gotten  that you were on your way to the hospital  and it's  like I knew what was to be I had knelt down on the kitchen  floor and had ask God to take me instead of you.  
But it wasn't  meant to be.  For God had already  set you free.  In his arms  where you were  meant to be.  I still to this day wonder why?
But who am I to question  God and his destiny's?  12 years oh my I never thought I would  last this long without  you. My youngest son  I still wonder. How you would of been.  12 years and not a day goes by that you are with me on my mind in my heart and thoughts.  How much I missed you  only God truly knows. I wish to this day for one last goodbye
A hug a kiss and a smile from you to me.  The years have gone by so quickly.  And I think that pain will always be deep in my heart.  No matter
How many years will pass.  Just needed  to express that losing you my son
Was the hardest thing out of all that I've been through was losing you. I love you now and always..  Sending you hugs, kisses and all my love.
                                                                                     From mom✨✨"

"As I sit here thinking what to write all I can do is just cry. It's been ten years and son I do try to keep on with my life. There a days that someone might see me and ask why do you look so sad? And there are other times when people will say what a beautiful smile . But my dear son just need you to know that 10 years have already gone by. It seems not so long for me when I got a call that you were sick to hurry to the hospital because you needed me. The first thing I did was kneel down on my kitchen floor and ask God to save you and to take me. I cry and cry but still didn't know that God already had you with thee. As I got up from praying to God I call your brother so he can help me. We rush to the hospital and after all was said they finally let me see your face. Laying in that bed without saying a word . I knew in that moment my life will never be the same.  I know I must keep on with my life for I still have your brother and a grandson to make me feel alive. But son I just wanted you to know that that day you were. gone a piece of my heart my life my soul has never been  the same. I have learn how to live day by day and have learn to trust in God again.  But I have not learn how to put away the pain that I feel every time I think of the day I lost you. I never got to say goodbye so for now I will say so long until I see you again.   I love you dear son.
Always in my mind heart and soul every. Minute and every second of my life until I get to see you and hold you in my arms again.  

In your loving memory
Love you always Mom.."
