My sweet baby boy, the day that knock came on our door shattered my entire world. You were the light of my life, my first true love. We had so many good times and a few worrisome times but through it all you were by my side any time I needed you.

I tried to show you how much I truly love you. From fussing at you when you were messing up to hugging you when you were upset, being an ear when you need someone to listen and cooking for you when you were hungry no matter the time of day or night. Of course you out cooked me quite a few times as well and I always made sure you knew when you cooked something better than me.

I told you every day that I love you because the least I could do as your mom was to make sure you knew that someone would love you unconditionally. I am so proud of the man you were becoming. The happiness I saw in your eyes when we talked about your plans for the future gave me so much joy.

The smiles and laughs we shared with each video call will forever be some of my favorite memories. The random phone calls just to say you love me I’ll cherish forever. I wish I could receive those calls again, hear your sweet voice say those words again, be wrapped up in one of your amazing hugs again.

I love you so much, Bubbie. There isn’t a person on this earth that will be missed more than you are. I’ll forever cherish the time I was blessed to have you as my baby and I thank you for allowing me to be your mom.

Rest easy my love. I’ll be seeing you when my time here is done, until then hug those waiting on us and please help me watch over your siblings. They miss you as much as I do and they need you as their angel.

I have been struggling for days on what to say, how to put into words the emotions and feelings in my heart and mind. Seems redundant doesn’t it? Emotions and feelings, but i trust you know what i mean. So bear with Auntie Anne.

I wasn’t there all of your life. But I watched you grow and mature. I fell for your ever ready smile, the laughter of your soul, the depth of thought in your mind. You were a true gift in my life. I hope i was one in return.

I was not ready for that call. Hell none of us were. I miss you. My ears ache to hear you call me Auntie Anne again. My eyes ache to see your smile. My heart aches to hear updates of your life.

Your memory is a bright blaze of sunlight in my mind. It is springtime and laughter made flesh. You are gone all too soon my sweet gentle nephew but i will hold that warmth close all of my days. Be at peace and rest easy Dalton. You are loved and remembered.

Love always and forever,
Auntie Anne

To my family,
There is nothing i can say or do to heal these wounds. No empty platitude, however well meant, can convey my empathy, care, love, and sorrow. I can only say i grieve beside you, i am with you, all of you. You know how to reach me. I am here. I love you all.

These kinds of things are only supposed to happen in sad movies. You were one of my best friends in high school. You were always so trusting and so understanding. My heart broke at the news of your passing. 💔 you are loved and missed by more people than you could have imagined

I will never forget all the fun times we had and all the times you were in my corner. You made an imprint on my heart that will never heal! You were taken from us far too soon, but i will forever cherish the memories we shared. I will never forget you baby boy. The good ones are always taken from us far too soon.
