Ann I am so sorry for your loss. I understand the feelings that you are going through. I lost my daughter 2 weeks shy of her 2 birthday. I can see just by your pictures the closeness in which you shared. He is very handsome. Even though I had 4 children, Ashley and I had a special bond that no one could take away and honestly don't think they could even now with her gone. If you ever want to talk, please feel free to contact me.

Ann, I also Had a really good picture of my son and printed a bunch of copies, wallet sized, I lamenated them and gave them to his friends to either put in their wallets or on their dashboards in their cars so that he would always be with them, they loved the idea.

What a handsome son you have, and nothing like a kiss from our boys.

Hi Ann, I had a nice BBQ on my sons 19th Birthday, It was a celebration of his life, it was on Nov. 2, just went to a park and about 50 people showed up, the weather was good so it worked out, it was 5 months after his passing. It wasnt a somber party, it was really good. Im sure some people think its CRAZY but I DONT care! LOL I had a cake and balloons and hot dogs and chips, soda, it was more of a gathering of his friends and family to let him know that we have not forgotten him. love to you...
