To my Dear Son, today is the third year without you on your birthday-each year I have to realize how long it's been since I've seen you, been able to hug you, tell you I love you, just hear your voice. I miss you more than I could ever put into words. You will always be my baby, my first born. You were so precious and brought many people happiness. You are loved and missed.
