Today is for remembering

by W.W. Roberts

Today is for remembering
The day begins like any other day,
The busy-ness of people all around me
Going about the tasks of their day,
Will never know the pain
This day marks for me.
I have survived a difficult year.
I have endured more pain and heartache
Than I ever thought possible,
And I have survived.
And I miss you...
It may just be another day
To everyone else,
But today I remember you.

Oh Dalene, I'm just crushed by the sweetness. Missing you so much Baker, remembering with your parents. Much love to you all.

Happy Belated Birthday Baker! You are so missed, sweet boy.

Dalene- I just read the last 6 posts, and I cried over every one. I feel as though I could have written them, as you and your husband's thoughts are so close to my own. It's just so hard, every day of this "afterwards".

Dalene,

I just came across your blog.... I am so sorry that Baker is not here with you. All of us having to be here, on this horrendous journey.. sucks.

Strength and love to you and sweet baby Baker.

I am so sorry I am so late in coming here to tell you that I am thinking of you. We had our own drama on your day of remembering and I have been out of blogs for a bit.
I hope the coming year brings you more peace and strength and that Baker will know how much he is loved and missed. Always.

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog. I remember April 3rd 2008 very well- now I'll remember that was Baker's day too.

He is a beautiful, beautiful baby. I am just so sorry.

I'm sorry I'm so late to this. I've just discovered your blog. Dalene and Chris, I'm remembering with you the whole month long. Your sweet boy. It's just so unfair. Much love to you all.
