Here's my journaling letter:
Dear Andrew,
I just wanted to write and tell you how very much I love you and miss you. Its been so hard to let you go. Not a day goes by that I dont expect the phone to ring and when I answer to hear your voice and your hearty laugh. Oh what tales you would share as you told of the many adventures you had. Im so glad you were able to realize so many of your dreams...trips to far-away places; living in a big city; being surrounded by friends & family.
Amanda shared this on your facebook page earlier this week... To My friend Andrew
You can shed tears that he is gone, Or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
Or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow & live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember he only that he is gone, Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, Be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what Andrew would want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Thank you Andrew for being you!!
So my son, I will smile, but not without a few tears, as we approach the second anniversary of your passing. I will remember what a fine son you were. I will thank God that you were a part of our lives for 37 years.
Love, Mom
