Happy Birthday Jonathan!

Today my angel baby would be a year old. In a way its a sad day, it reminds me of every thing he will never do or be, all the things we miss out on with him. But on the other hand, the hand I tend to use more, it is a day that we got to learn lessons about life and love we may never have learned any other way. He is the angel who guides our family through life. I know he is with us in every way.

As I look at the photos of him. His tiny toes and his tiny perfect body I realize the love for a child never fades. I love him more every day since I first found out I was pregnant with him.

A moment in our hands
Forever in our hearts
Always in our thoughts
Never far apart

A life that was so short lived
And question still remain
We will always think of you
And always know your name

A love so strong as ours
Can never go away
So although we're far apart
In our hearts you'll stay

A moment in our hands
Forever in our hearts
We will always love you, Son
Even though we're far apart

A love so strong as ours
Can never go away
We will love you till the end
We will love you everyday

~written by Daddy

We love you sweet baby. You always have a large piece of Mommy and Daddy's heart. You are our Angel and we love you forever and always.

Happy Birthday Jonathan, from Grandma.

Zack, what a beautiful poem!

I just sent an email, but thought I would come and post here too on this special day.

Been thinking about you all a lot and remembering the Memorial Garden we made for Jonathan last year.

He is very much loved and will be in our hearts forever!

Love Mom

I am personally in awe of you today. What an amazing way to keep your little angel in your hearts. Very inspirational! Zach, the poem, I had no idea - absolutely beautiful. Shelly, Asher, "Peanut" and I keep you in our prayers.
