Ben's Mom

Today is my Ben's 40th Birthday. It will be three years in June that he passed away. This morning I baked his favorite cake, and even put candles on it. His Dad and I sent up a balloon into the sky, and oh how I hope he caught it. No presents this year for him, only our love and gratitude that we were blessed with this beautiful baby 40 yrs. ago. I yearn for him, and I feel such agony over his loss. I know he's in Heaven; he has sent so many signs. I know I must go on, but days like this are just so so painful. I miss him, and want to hold him in my arms, just as I did that day he was born. We love you and miss you beyond any words.

Dear Bens Mom, I know Bens birthday was very hard for you, but I think you did a wonderful job for him. I know he got your balloon. I sent a balloon to Austin, with a special Mom message for Easter. I watched it float away until I couldn't see it anymore. I just know it went straight to heaven to him. His first birthday in heaven will be August 18. I love how you celebrated Bens birthday. I think I will do the same for Austin. Happy Birthday to Ben. My love to you Bens Mom, April, Austins Mom.
