Little Patrick's first Angel-versary

One year ago today God called little Patrick home. It's hard to believe that it has been a year already since his passing. My heart aches to have little Patrick in my arms and to hear his sweet voice. Parents should never have days like today to remember, but we do. Like all the other parents that have lost a child, we will get through it and one day we will know why these things happen.

Little Patrick was so many things in his short life, he was a: son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and a great-grandson. He fought hard to come into this world and he touched so many people during his short journey here on Earth. He is now our guardian angel and is always with us. I know I will see him again one day and for me that day will be glorious.

This morning, Patrick, Savannah and I attended mass with Patrick's parents. Patrick and I will take Savannah to a park later this morning and then we will come home and plant the magnolia tree (along with my parents and Patrick's parents) we bought in memory of little Patrick.

Again, we thank everyone for all of the love, support and prayers that we have received during these difficult times.

Love to all,
April, Patrick and Savannah

April! As I read your post I'm just getting teary-eyed thinking about the past year. What a miracle your sweet children are. I know without a doubt that you will get to see Patrick again and enjoy more sweet and tender moments with him. You will always be his mother and I can just feel so very special his spirit is. Love, Faye
