Four years have now passed son, they say that time can help to heal, I do not know how this happens son, I miss you so much Lloyd, miss you so much x

I wake each morning , and I see your face, I know you would not want me to be unhappy, you would want me to smile and enjoy my time with your dad.

Well son, sometimes I do laugh and have fun, for I forget just for a moment that you are not here, its so hard son, this invisable pain, it’s just that I love you so son, and always will, you sleep tight bab, and keep them angels on their toes.
