Smiling as always, my Angel.

Smiling as always, my Angel.

This is the memorial notice to be placed in the local newspaper on 17th August 2011:-
06/10/1983-17/08/2008 (Forever young)
WE MISS YOU... Our special 'Angel', Leedon,
Sadly three years have passed, but your memory lingers on......
Though it's never easy to be apart, a connection keeps us close in heart.
The days seem to drift by slowly without you around!
You are always on our minds, forever loved and missed every day.
You remain in our hearts, just one beat away.
It will never be the same without you in our lives.
You are forever loved by us all. We will never ever forget you.
Forever in our hearts. You may be gone, but never forgotten,
Love always- Mom & Dad; Darren, Tarrin & Leia; Garth, Jamie & Paige."

You now have two beautiful nieces and your brother Darren is having another child, if it is a boy he will name him "Ty Leedon Couzens" in your memory.
I miss you so very much and am having a difficult time not being able to see or hold you tight.
I wonder when I will see you again.
Every year we get together on the anniversary of you leaving us and do something very special in your honour, you were one of the most precious people in my life and I find it so very hard not to have you here, when will see each other again.
Your brother, Garth, looks so much like you and somtimes his expressions make me want to hold him tight as he just like you in many ways.
I still cry everyday, but I try not to let anyone see my sadness, it's hard not to.
Your Dad gave me a hug today because I was desperate for your presence, please don't let me wait too long to see you again. I wonder where you are all the time and if you are happy - do you miss us? as much as we miss you my angel.
I wish that your nieces could have known you, they will miss out on a lot as you were such a special person, loving and caring and always happy and smiling.
I will always love you and miss you until we are together again.

Love, Mom (Marmalade).

that was absolutely beautiful...I am approaching the one year anniversary of the death of my sweet son Dimitri on 8/9/11. It seems like this year has been both dragging and flying at the same time. I'm still numb....
God Bless Mothers who have lost a child
Hugs to you!
