12 years ago...  / Mom (Mom)

It was 12 yrs ago yesterday that I made 2 of the biggest mistakes in my life. I should have questioned the surgeon more and made him tell me how he was going to do the surgery. I should have MADE them let me stay with you in the OR. I left you the night after your surgery to be selfish and sleep. I should have never left your side. You would be here today I know it if I had been a better Mom to you. I will forever carry this guilt with me. I am so sorry my sweet little boy! If I got a chance to do it all over again I promise I would never leave your side and I would take back all of those thing's I was saying to you 12 yrs ago today. I love you with all of my heart and I would give my life if I could just hold you one more time and remember your touch smell your gigglebut most of all your smile....

 

I love you Michael

I Thought Of You....  / Beth (Mom)

Thought of you with love today but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake with which I'll never part. God has you in his keeping I have you in my heart ~

9 years  / Mom

My dearest Michael.

I can't believe it has been 9 yrs. This day bring's back so many painful memories. They are etched in my heart 4 ever. How I wish I could reach out and hug you or touch you. I miss your spirit and your smile so much. There were many day's that your smile was the only thing that would keep me going. I would walk into your room feeling exhausted and terrified as to what each day would bring, but when I would see your smile all of the fear and tiredness would disappear and You made everything better! You with your smile because I knew you were in pain, but you would still give me that beautiful smile. So Michael, on this 9 year anniversary of you leaving us, I want you to know how much you are loved and missed. And how the world would be a better place if you had been aloud to live.

All my love always,

Mom

What a spirit!  / Janet James (Family Friend )

The loss of a child to me is unthinkable.  How a family could go through that loss and turn around to help others is remarkable.  I see the photos of Michael-what a happy boy.  With all he had to endure, that smile and sparkle in his eyes is heartwarming.  Beth and John and Anthony continue to honor his name and work toward a cure for OI in his name.  Michael is smiling down with much pride.  In his short life, he has touched so many...even years later.
