My son Jymm 9/3/81-10/7/99

I know I have posted probably way too, many pics here of my family.I just felt like I had to post this one.It's my son Jymm-who would have been 25 years old this coming Sunday.I'm having a difficult time this year facing the day of his birth which was one of the most happiest days of my life.This will be the 7th year I can't hug him and kiss him for his birthday.We will do the usual visit to the cemetary with balloons and sing to him.This year I purchased a huge sand dollar to put against his headstone.We will cry and laugh and share our favorite memories of him.
I would like to ask you- my family here to hold your children a little tighter this weekend-kiss them maybe 100 more times than you would normally do and say I love you as many times as well.LOve and energy, Vicki
PS. this picture was taken the night of his Senior Prom-four months before he left us.

This is a song just for you, Jymm, and the special memories... I hope you like it.

(I am not a country type of gal, but believe me this is one of the most beautifully written songs I have ever heard, it touches my heart deeply every time I hear it.)

(((Vicki))) Smile looking up the sky... I am sure he will return a smile looking over you

You brought tears to my eyes. I'm so sorry for your (and your family's) loss. Thank you for reminding us about not taking our children for granted. Your son looks very handsome in the photo.

Vicki, your photos are always welcome, especially those of your dear family. Handsome boy, your Jymm. I thank you so much for trusting us with your cherished memories. Children are such a blessing, and are placed in our lives and end up teaching us far more about life and love than we ever could have learned in school. Sending you hugs.
