There was no time to say goodbye. I didn’t know that last day I saw you so many years ago that I would never see you again. Had I known you would be gone from my life, I could have told you how much you meant to me. I would have told you how much I loved you.
I want this letter to be a celebration of your life and the life we had together; you, me and your brother. I was proud of you and the way you helped me over the years. You had to grow up too fast but you were up to the task and I don’t ever remember a time I called upon you and you disappointed me.
For so many years my world revolved around you and your brother.
I would thank God that he had given me two special sons to raise and nurture and watch over. There are so many memories of our years together in my mind and in my heart. I flash back at times and remember those good times. There were so many of them;
your first step, your first day of school, so many Christmas and birthdays, your high school graduation. Did I ever tell you that when you were about 19 or 20, I would look at you and marvel at what a fine son you were…..so tall and handsome. I felt so fortunate that you were my son
You had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to tease anyone you could. When I needed your help you were there for me and for your brother. I had to take some of your childhood away because I needed your help with so many things. I always hoped that I could make it up to you.
So much left unsaid…..but I am saying it now. I loved you from the first time I saw your face and I still love you today. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers.
I felt so fortunate that you were my son.
I would thank God that he had given me two special sons to raise and nurture and watch over.
