We miss you everyday.
December 10th will be four years without you.
Time stands still in so many ways. Your little clothes are still in your
dresser, your shampoo is still in the bathtub, your jackets still hang
on the coatrack. The desk our friend gave you is still in the
We know you’re not coming home, but we can’t
let go of your things. It’s still sad to see the school bus stop at the
end of the driveway and you’re not there.
I miss you so much.
My little man,
Another long year without you, but sometimes a
day can feel like a year without your happy smiling face and amazing
sense of humor.
You are so, so badly missed that words can’t
describe the way I feel without you here. The day you left me is a day
that has changed my world forever.
I always think of how much you would have
grown since that day. I know you were turning into a little man, but you
will always by “my little man.”
It’s hard to think about you growing up, when
you hardly had time to be a boy. I love and miss you so much. I think
about all the times we had and the love we had for each other and how
much more love I had left to give to you.
You are my little man who will always be in my
heart and mind forever.
