Today my son would be celebrating his thirty-fourth birthday. Would be. He died when he was twenty-two.
But this day will still be remembered–if only by me.
His life was still important. His contributions still remembered. And, his laughter still reverberates.
The calendar is always marked on this date. The significant moments of his childhood still bring laughter and joy to my heart. And, no matter where I am, he’s only a memory away.
Although it’s been almost twelve years since he left this earth, he is still loved, and greatly missed.
Today his birthday will be celebrated–but with tears.
