It has been three years today since you left us Paul Des. Three full years without your smile, your laugh and your hugs ..... seems incredible.
We miss you so very much and that will never change. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would in an instant.
Since you died there is a little white butterfly that seems to always be around me, especially in my lowest moments, sitting outside or looking out the window or even stopped at a light. I like to think that is a sign from you telling me it is okay Mom. Sometimes I even say out loud, hi son and thank you, when I see it. That may sound a little crazy but it gives me a bit of comfort in the moment.
I know i will see you again but till then please take care of that piece of my heart you took with you.
Love you eternally, Mom.

Dear Brenda & family
Please know I think about you all very often.
Time heals, yet it does not mend. We soldier on because that is what both Paul's want for you. Brenda your grandchild is Paul. Paul's beatiful wife knows this as well. There is some comfort in that. We think we are in control but in reality we are pawns on a chess board.are next move can be great or perhaps it's are final act as the curtain of are life is unveiled to the heavens above.
We here the pawns with no control accept our lot because we have no choice. Brenda please try your best to carry on with a lighter heart. The Paul's in your life are with you and love you and their famalies with their whole being. If God be with us who can be against us.brenda I will pray many hail Mary's today in my nind for paul and paul to touch the hearts and minds of your entire family so that inner peace is within us all. I love you Brenda Caley for you are good as are your family. I love them as well. Amen

Today you would have been 36, my son. This all still seems so unreal to me. It hurts so much not to have you here. Your birthday comes and goes but there is no reason to celebrate. You are in my heart and on my mind today, as you are every day of the year, My love for you is eternal and time cannot diminish the emptiness that your loss leaves in my heart. I love and miss you so very much, Till we meet again ...... mom.

Another Christmas without you is upon us my son. You are so dearly loved and missed.
Your little girl, that you never met, is 2 now. She asks me to open the locket that I wear, she says 'Daddy' and kisses your picture. It is bitter/sweet Paul Des, but I know you are watching over her.
Please hold tightly the piece of my heart that you took with you so that when we meet again, it will be whole.
Today,December 18th, your dad's birthday I see you sitting together, reunited and smiling upon us. I look forward to embracing you both when I am called home.
You are always in my heart, thoughts and prayers. My love for you is eternal.
Mom

Oh my beautiful son, Paul Desmond ... two years have passed since we lost you. I didn't think it could get any harder but apparently, I was wrong. My heart bleeds constantly. I love and miss you so very much. I pray for strength to deal with your absence every day. I will always love you and your memory remains always in my heart, mind and very soul. Your Mom

"A Pair of Shoes"
author unknown

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes. They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in this world.
Some women are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think
about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
