Forever in Our Hearts

We miss you.  We love you. 

It never gets any easier, but every year we are closer to all being together for eternity--in a place where there is no sadness, no tears, no pain.

The kids have declared today a chore free, reading free day, because you would have wanted it that way.  They are right.

It's also a day for milkshakes, ribs, and the new Transformers movie. 

Because you would have wanted it that way.

But my heart still aches for you--a hole that can never be filled. 

We miss you.  We love you. 

But we will keep on living the life you never had a chance to complete--until we meet again.

"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book."  ~ Psalm 56:8

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~ Romans 8:38-39

Such a handsome son! I know him only through you but am glad you shared a small part of him. He looks amazing. I still remember your post about the stair surfing/sliding? I am sorry he is not with you now. The hardest part of living is living without those we love most. Hugs.
