Happy 31ST Birthday!
You left me too soon my darling son and today would have been your 30th birthday. Losing you in a senseless automobile accident was the most devastating day of my life. The hole in my heart can never be filled because there will never be another you. God blessed me the moment you were born my dear son, and through the years you gave me so much joy and love. The kind of love that only a mother could understand - the special bond that exists between a mother and her son.
I was fortunate to have you in my life for only 17 years, and I was so proud of you my son, I loved you more than words could ever say - but you knew that. I often think about the loss of your future not yet lived, your wedding day never to come, and the grandchildren I will never see. Most of all, I miss you calling me "Mom", the sound of your voice which echoes in my head even today. I have cherished and kept all of your artwork, report cards, and mementos to take out and look at when I feel the need to be close to you.
Your photos serve to remind me of the short time we had together and how fast you grew up right before my eyes. I miss you my darling son, so forgive me if I cry for you on this day and many days. If I'm sad it's because you were my only child, my heart, and you meant everything to me.
Happy Birthday Jordan - I'll be seeing you when I get there! Until then, I will miss you and love you as I always have since you passed away.
