Nathan's Second Angel Day

Dear Nate,

For your second Angel Day I had wanted to write a profound post that would summarize our thoughts and feelings on this day. Instead, I think back to something that I said to your mom earlier this week, “sometimes the simplest words are the best to say”.

With that in mind….WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!

It is hard to believe that two years have gone by. You are in our thoughts so many times each day...your photos are the screensaver on my laptop at work; your photos are throughout the house and the last thing I do before bed each night is to look at a photo of you taken just 10 days before you died. Each night I pray that you realize how much we love you and how much we miss you.

Your mom and I are so grateful that we were chosen to be your parents. Your little brother misses you a lot and still has a hard time understanding why he can’t fly a helicopter up to Heaven to get you.

I know that you are so happy in Heaven. You are SMA free...running around and playing with all your friends. Knowing that gives us some consolation.

Please continue to watch over us and to give us signs!
