Happy Birthday Joshua sweety. I don't know if you even care about birthdays in Heaven. What is a year in Heaven? Do you even have years now? But to me here on earth....you would be 12 years old today. I would have given you a hug and a happy birthday before sending you off to school. I would be getting a party ready for you and a special dinner. Today would be focused on how special and wonderful you are. The funny thing is that the day isn't just for you. It is for those who love you to celebrate and thank our Lord for creating you and allowing us to enjoy your presence in our lives. I do thank God for creating you my boy. I look forward to the time we will be reunited in eternity with our Lord. I just miss you oh so much my little man.

Here is a poem written by your Aunt Terry last year for your birthday.

I'm singing a song
For a loved one who's gone
But I picture his face
Ever smiling
We think of his joy
Our sweet handsome boy
Of Joshua Cute and beguiling

I think of his family of Sally and Jeff
Micah, Erik, Jacob, Lynn Marie
And Westley as well,
Their grief blends with love
As they join hearts together with me.

Happy birthday dear Josh
Happy birthday from us
We miss you with each passing day

Happy birthday to you
We celebrate your life
Whose spark still gives out Lovely rays.

Thinking of you today on Josh's birthday.
Love and hugs,Terry

I'm visiting via the black box. I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you to lose someone so special. Happy Birthday to your dear little boy.
I'm sure his spirit is at peace and is watching over you.
Sending you a big hug x

Thank you bohemian mummy for stopping by. I appreciate your birthday wishes for my little man. He is happy in heaven but we who are left behind miss him dearly.

The hairs are standing up on the back of my neck, having read this.
I cannot imagine anything worse than dealing with your loss.
I'm moaning about having an empty nest, and that is nothing to what you guys are dealing with.
I am so sorry for your loss

I admire your strength as a Christian and how you hold your heart out to Christ. Despite the travesties that you have endured. You will be in my heart and my thoughts.

Besides prayer should you need anything else let me know.
