Happy Birthday, Austin

Dear Austin,

I wish you could read this, somehow, some way. I wish I could tell you how your little brother has grown up into a fine, young man. I wish you could eat Easter dinner with us...

There is never a day that goes by where you are not with me. There is never a day that passes without a question of who you'd be today. There is never a day that weaves through my life that I don't wish things were so different.

Forever, and ever - Happy Birthday, AJ!

~ Mom

I am so very sorry for the loss of your brother-exquisite pain that spreads thru our body when we think of the missing sibling--which is a number of times each day as we go about our regular routine days and nights.

Thank you, Lynda. Austin was my son. He was born 26 years ago and died 6 months later.

My prayers are with you Mom, and I hope you find some peace today.

Thank you, SD... as my living son says every day he leaves the house, "Gonna be the best day ever!" and with that I went out into my life this morning...

and tonight, I had dinner with that son... and laughed and gave him a big hug with a quiet voice that looked up and said, "Thank you."
