8 years since I held Denver in my arms.......


Its been 8 years since I held you in my arms my son! How I still miss you!

I wonder who you would look like and what type of trouble you would be getting in to today... Your 8th birthday..... What type of cake would you have wanted?

They say as the time goes on the pain will be less.... I feel the pain like I did the day you were born... Your Daddy and I in the hospital only days after getting married... Holding you in my arms for the first time.. Counting your fingers and toes.

Denver you came in to this world and left so soon..... To soon.... The tears I have cried for you... I so long for the time to hold you again.....




You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I'm still here so far away from home


In Christ, there are no goodbye
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again

I'm so sorry for your loss. I believe that when we lose someone, a little piece of their soul lives on within those that love them...

Chelley -
What a beautiful tribute to your son. I can't imagine the pain and loss you must deal with but God will sustain you until that glorious day you can be together again.

A great big hug from Tennessee,
