Happy Easter James! We had a great time playing games with the kids and playing jokes. Our hito helps hide the eggs now lol.... We're blessed to have the son we have James. I know you know. Its milestones you're not physically here for that still hurt. He's looking forward to hunting. I wish you were taking him. You two would've had so much. He's looking like you more and more James. Expressions, mannerisms.... its bitter sweet. Life roles on, but you're always with us in heart. Memorial is around the corner and were all looking forward to new blessed memories. We love you, we miss you, and always you are part of our lives. Continue to help me guide our shining light! Its almost time for him to fly!
