Here it is November 28,2017. It’s been 17 years since I have seen your smile, heard your voice and laugh or gotten a big hug. You live on in my heart and always will as long as I live & breathe. I miss you everyday and I know your daughter, brother , wife and everyone who loved you does too. There’s not a time you aren’t on my mind and closure doesn’t exist ,you just learn to deal with life a different way. I know you and Dad are together and so we have our own guardian angels. Love you always son, Mom
