thank you mom

Here's a poem my mom wrote right after Andrew passed. She signed it from us, from I know she is the one who wrote it and I thank her for that (other than the first 4 lines which she readily admits she 'borrowed' from another poem).

An angel wrote in the book of life
Andrew's date of birth
Then she whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for earth"
We weren't prepared to say goodbye
Before we said hello
We couldn't accept not holding you
Before you had to go
We wanted to cuddle you, stroke your cheek
and watch you play
We could never imagine that you
wouldn't get to stay
So remember Andrew, we love you
and that's a special love
we hold you close beside us
feeling your sweetness from above
We will love you forever,
Mommy, Daddy, and Katelyn

i hope you're happy in heaven

Today is my sister Mary K's birthday.  I wish I could write about how important my family has been in my healing process, but there aren't really words.  Maybe I'll try someday.  For Mary K's birthday, I want to show her something to be proud of.  This is a drawing from my niece Kylee.  If you know Kylee, I'm sure this comes as no surprise.  She drew this on her own one day at my house.  We hadn't been talking about Andrew or anything.  She just went upstairs and came back down a bit later and gave this to me.  You can imagine how special that was to me.

"I hope you're happy in Heaven Andrew"
