ForeverMissed
6 weeks without my heart . My world feels so lonely even while family is all around. I’m loved and blessed in so many ways , but will never be the same without you. I miss your unconditional love, your presence, your companionship, your sweet voice, your kisses, our playtime, our walks, talks and dinners together. I miss cooking for you, cuddles on the couch and bed. I miss your warm loving eyes - and the way we communicated without words ❤️. 
You bridged my life in the most beautiful way. You came into my world at such a dark time and brought love and light.I was the first to hold you moments after you took your very first breath. I dropper and bottle fed you when your sweet mommy couldn’t and needed temporary hospitalization. I weaned you off the bottle and to the bowl. I watched you take your first steps, chew the dining room table. You were the first to learn to climb the only step in your nonna’s house. All of the nurses at the local hospitals and care facilities quickly fell in love with you anytime we visited your nonna. You loved traveling with me as a little guy and quickly grew fond of your little red rolling bag of which we took on planes, trains and automobiles.  My moving companion when I moved away from my family and started a new life 328 miles away. You were with me throughout culinary school, new jobs and when we bought our new condo. 
For 12 years and 8 months, you were my one and only ❤️. Almost 4 years ago, I welcomed a new love into my life - and you ended up loving her too. Just 3 weeks away from becoming a family of 3, you said goodbye. You were hurting, you wanted to stay but your little sweet precious heart couldn’t hang much further - and you said goodbye .
You bridged my life from the death of my mom, divorce and relocation to the doorsteps of my new life ❤️. You have been the most beautiful thing that’s happened to me and that is why you will always remain in my heart and soul as my most beautiful story ❤️.
I protected you until the day you took your last breath in my arms. I wanted you to cross the rainbow bridge without pain, fear and loved beyond words. I sent you with my heart to keep you warm till the day I come home. I hope I did my best to make sure you knew you were my everything ❤️. I will always love you with every beat of my heart. 

No more pain my little one . Soar high above the clouds and run free with mommy and baby sister Zoey. Till we are together again

Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end,
They simply mean “I’ll miss you” until we meet again

In My Heart

I thought of you today.
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
I think of you in silence.
I often speak your name.
Now all I have are memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake.
With which i’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in our heart.
