I miss this freckled face boy every day...and my heart aches as he would have turned 17 on March 23rd Warren went to heaven on November 24, 2014..He was 13. Around his birthday, more than any other time, I wonder more about what he would look like and how our lives would be different if [...]

Since Sunday (11-1) there has been an incredible peace that has covered us in a way that I just can't explain. What's complicated about this peace, is that it's not what you might imagine.
