I cannot believe it has been 6 years. So much has changed. Matti is in school, Rick is home from Germany, you have another neice Briana, MacKenzie is in high school, Carson is playing football, Kyleigh would brighten up your day for sure. The one thing that will not change is the hole in my heart and the tears I shed every year this time missing you more than anything.
I will never know why someone had to set you up for this, but I do know God will pay that person back ten fold. Mike and Shawn have been punished but the one who started it all is free and enjoying his life. I hope I live long enough son to see that Karma come around.
Today we will gather together at your grave as we always do. We will never forget and there will never be a day when we don't wish you were still here with us.
I pray that I can do the best for your beautiful daugter that I can. She is amazing and certainly is my saving grace. She loves me just like you did son. You and i had that relationship that every parent dreams of and I would not take a moment of those memories back. You knew I loved you with all my heart and I knew you loved me. Matti shares that same love with me. When I look into her big brown eyes it is almost like I am looking in yours again. You would be so proud, she is beautiful, so smart and loving.
Erica still misses you everyday and I wish I could bring you back to her. She will never love another like she loved you.
Brittaney, Leigh and Rick are doing good but they will always be scarred from this. I see the hurt in their faces and wish so much I could take it away. You four were a whole and a piece is now gone. I can promise you though it is never forgotten.
I pray that you are having a wonderful time in heaven and that you are saving a place for us all right next to you. What a beautiful day it will be when we are all reunited for eternity. Then I know I will miss you no more.
I love you with all my heart son, I hurt as bad today as I did 6 years ago but I know you are with me always.
