For Joshua

To lose a child is a parents worse nightmare.

Five years ago today, a very special angel made his way upward, to our Father's House, where I know he dwells, healthy and happily playing with his many trains.

Yes, Kelly, cancer may have won the battle, but you my dear lady have won the war.  You are an inspiration to me, and you are a truly remarkable woman.  Someday I hope you and I have the opportunity to meet, face to face.  Until that day, this is the only hug I can give you.  {{{{{{{Kelly}}}}}}}

Remember, you are not alone.

For Joshua will always live in your heart...forever young...forever innocent...forever free.

Be happy my friend, and may you find peace in your journey today, tomorrow, and always.  For your son is shining brightly in heaven, lighting the way, with his smile, with his laugh, always helping.

He has not forgotten what you taught him.

This one touched my heart a lot.  My very close friend lost her 5 year old son 3 years ago.  The anniversary of his death is this month.  I think about him a lot.  Big Hugs, Nicki
