Happy Birthday David.

No cakes. No candles. No parties. Just missing the little guy we never had a chance to get to know.

We recently got his marker. It took us a while, but in many ways it seems like just yesterday that we were waiting to meet him and love him for however long he would be with us.

I am so thankful for the photos that were taken by a wonderful volunteer photographer from Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. I hope one day every hospital will know about this organization and let their patients know about their services when they may be needed. It's priceless.

    I am always at a loss for words on days like these. What beautiful pictures! A picture truly does tell a thousand words. Thank you for sharing them with us.

    It is a journey none of us should have to take but knowing you and David has helped me in my walk with the Lord.

    You are a constant inspiration and I am very honored to call you my friend.

    David will never be forgotten and always loved! I am here if you need me.

    speaking with you on the phone. My heart and prayers go out to your family.

    Don't know what happened to all of my comment but just know that you are all dearly loved.


  3. It only seems like yesterday. I know this has got to be a hard day for you but know that you are always in our prayers.
    We don't always understand why God lets these things happen but we do know that he has a plan for it all. It does make it easier knowing that we will see him again one day. Our love and prayers are always with you all. Love Nana

  4. David has been on my mind all day today! It brings all types of emotions back into view. To think of the way that I feel, I can't even imagine what this day must do for you. Just wanted to send my own "Happy Birthday" to David, whether it be here on earth or in heaven he is still my nephew and close to my heart. Both he and you may never know what this experience has done for my life. Not to mention the many ways we have become more than sisters... friends over the last few years. I'm always here for you! I love you all and want you to know that you are in my prayers EVERYday!

  5. You and your family are in Joel and my prayers.

  6. Crystal, I remembered that David's Birthday is today... wanted to send a message earlier and just now got the time to do so! Happy Birthday to your precious angel baby! I know that this is not the kind of Birthday celebration that you have in mind... I KNOW that this day is hard! You are in my thoughts... many ((Hugs)) for you!

    His photos are all so precious... what a treasure. I saw his photo on the NILMDTS site a few weeks ago. Breathtaking!
    You take care :)

  7. Crystal,
    Keeping you in my heart and prayers. Such a beautiful little guy...gone from this earth far too soon.

    His stone is beautiful. There could not be a more fitting verse.

    Wishing you peace during this time.
