Happy Fourth Birthday!

Posted by Daddy on at 9:04 pm

My sweet young son Weeble,

Tomorrow is your fourth birthday. As I prepare to celebrate that with the family, I realize how much I miss you.

Heike has made a lot of decorations and party favors, and we have ordered a bouncy house. Many of your friends will be here to help us celebrate. I wish you could be here for the party.

Katie has been taking infant swimming lessons. How I wish that we had given you the same opportunity to survive your accident. She is doing well and is learning to float on her back and swim for short distances.

Your baby brother Simon, whom you never got to meet, is growing big and plump. He smiles a lot and has started to laugh out loud at Mommy and your brothers and sisters and me.

You have been gone for over one year now. During the days right after you died, I told many people that we would be going on, not without you, but toward you.  After all of this time, I believe that even more strongly now than I did then.  I live everyday in the anticipation of being with you again in the presence of our Father.

I know that you are having fun there at home while we must stay here for a while in the Far Country. When we meet again you can introduce me to family members I have never known, and I will do the same for you. I can’t wait to see you and I love you.

Love, Daddy
