Hi Blue Angel. Thought I'd stop in as I was thinking about you today. Time never heals old wounds when it comes to losing a child so I know what your Mom and daughter live with every day. There is always something to remind them of you every day, a photograph, a special holiday. Today I came across the rubbing your daughter made for me of my son Mike's name off the wall in Washington D.C. I put it on his honor table I have for him in my house. We all take one day at a time, wake up and dress and get through the day and not a day passes without thinking about our lost one. Continue keeping watch over your loved ones and know you have not been forgotten.

"I heard someone whisper your Name.
When I turned around to see who is was;
I found myself alone.
Then I knew, it was my heart Missing you."
