Five years baby boy and it still feels like 5 minutes since I heard the words that forever changed my life. The day all the colors of the world turn a paler color, the sun less brighter but my heart so much heavy from the grief I carry always. My first born, my first love and my greatest hero. I sure hope the world knows what they lost and the angels realized what a blessing they received when you arrived. I carried in my stomach for nine months and loved you in my world for 26 years. But now I will forever carry you in my heart til I see you again. I’ll be seeing you sweet boy

Love you to infinity and beyond
