An odd thing happened to me this morning. Until seeing this I had forgotten what day it was. You know I will never forget you. I think about you daily, we speak often, and I still occasionally shed a tear thinking about you but since the monster was put down 2 years ago I spend less time thinking about this day and more time thinking about all the others.

With the help of Facebook I was able to get back into contact with Rose and Stephanie. A group of us are making a trip soon to get together with them and make sure they know we are here for them always. I'm looking forward to catching up with Rose and getting to know Stephanie, I haven't see her since she was a baby. Going to spend the day swapping stories, laughing, and probably a little crying. I know Stephanie already know how many lives you touched from things she h read here but it's time the little girl you never got to meet hears it first hand.

Miss you Super Rookie
