Joshua would have been 11 on April 8. He was our grandson and came to live with us when he was three weeks old, till his death.. April 8,1998 - May 25,2000. I HAVE WRITTEN HIS LIFES STORY ON MY DEN UNDER STORIES. I hope some will stop by and read about our special little angel .


You're spending your birthday
in heaven again this year.
How beautiful it must be!
You can see the sun shining
through its endless eternities.

The sight is so spectacular,
your spirit is carefree and gay.
You can run and jump in moonbeams,
see stars twinke as you play.

An angel choir is singing,
melodies soft and low. Their
songs echo through paradise and
to earth below.

Our hearts are often heavy,
filled with pain and sorrow.
We miss your presence in our
lives. For you, there were no
new tomorrows.

We know you are in heaven
and we will let our hearts sing,
because you're sharing your
eleventh birthday, with God,
the king of kings

Happy Birthady Josh. We love you and miss you so very much..

He looks like such a sweet boy... I am sure you miss him terribly. My youngest biological son would have turned 13 on April 16th. He lived only three days. May peace hold your heart as you remember him.

Oh, MaryGrace, what a wonderful poem! The visions you paint in the poem are so well stated that one can just imagine a little child "running and jumping on moonbeams." You were so lucky to have him, even if it was for such a short time. God bless.

Though in celebration of such a young one's birthday, the pain you carry in your heart remains. May he have a wonderful birthday, free from pain and continue to keep his warmth and love in your heart. God bless you always....

Be always safe,
