I love you so much baby boy, I'd do anything to be there. I miss you more than anything and wish I could hear your laugh one more time. My heart hurts. I haven't been able to do much of anything, I've been taking it pretty hard. I wish you were here still... But fly high superman. I'll love you forever.
