Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare


It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

Happy Birthday, William!

Mommy and Daddy love you and hope you are jumping on clouds, laughing and playing!

Thank you for waking me up at 4:14 am today, I know you came by to say hello, I appreciate that. I woke up in tears because you are not here physically but I do feel you with me today.

You have so many caring loving people here on earth that miss you. They have all done such wonderful things for you on this day, and for us too. T., Shaina and Peter all released balloons for you this morning. Grammi made a donation to March of Dimes. Shaina and Peter donated a toy to Toys for Tots in honor of you. Jodi wrote you a Happy Birthday email and sent her thoughts to Mommy and Daddy.

Later today, Mommy, Daddy, Grammi, Pappa, Aunt B., Uncle M., B and L., Grandpa Wayne, Aunt Tracy and Uncle Jas will be releasing balloons to heaven for you. Grandpa B and Angie will release balloons in the Caymans for you today also. Mommy is working on cleaning the house and finishing up your cake.

It's been a rough day but with all of the love and support from friends and family I know we will all get through it. We love you and miss you little one.

Happy Birthday sweet, sweet baby boy!

(I will post pictures of everything later this weekend. Our Christmas lights will go on outside and on the tree inside this evening after dark. We will be releasing balloons around 4:30 our time. Please join us in thought as we have our cake this evening. Thank you all for all of your support!)

Happy Birthday, precious little man. Though you are terribly missed here, I know you have precious company there with all of your loved ones and your other angel friends.

I hope your family is doing well today. The balloons are a beautiful idea. I can't wait to see pictures.

Happy Birthday William! This is such a hard day for your family, but they are filling it with a celebration of you.

Singing and eating (cookies - not cake) but in your memory nonetheless.
