Jon's Birthday

I knew Jon's birthday might be hard on us so I did my best to keep busy.  I made cookies for the kids at the school I volunteer at.  I also decided that I should make a cake just like I would if he was still here.  I felt that we should stilll celebrate him because he deserved it.  We went to dinner and shared stories. 
We all miss him.

I\'m glad you and your family were together for Jon\'s birthday. Being around family & friends help so much getting through those special days.. As the years go by I seem to do things at the spur of the moment. I\'ve been through 4 birthdays, Ryan died on April 15 2006, he was 18.. August 8th of this year he would be 23 years old.. It is so hard each birthday, BUT keeping busy is the Key, for all the pecious memories...Love to you, Kelly

I think that it is always important to celebrate their birth...because we do! We are grateful for that truly special gift of life. I always try to remember the joy when my twins were born and hold on to that. We celebrate each year because Jared is still with us...it gets a bit easier each year...I know Jared wishes with all his heart (as do I)that Alex were still here with us. But, Jared lives and our memory of Alex does as well. Peace to you friend...love and hugs...Karen

I\'m glad you celebrated Jon\'s birth. Our daughter Corrie would have been 22 on April 6th. We ate her favorite food (sushi) and made her favorite cake (icebox cake) and then released three beautiful balloons to the heavens (a giant dragonfly, a butterfly garden scene and a Tinkerbell Happy Birthday balloon). It\'s important to remember and to celebrate. Our children will always be part of our lives.

Love and hugs ~ Debbie

Our childrens birth was a gift and it should be celebrated. I\'m happy you made cake and shared stories. They may not be present across the table from us but they are always present in our hearts. Love to you. Robin
