March 10, 2013, would have been his 21st birthday:

Dear Shannon, I wanted to wish you a happy 22nd birthday... I wish you were here so I could. I miss you so much.... sometimes my heart just aches thinking of your turmoil, and then it is glad, remembering that you must be at peace! So, March 10th is your birthday and I just want to say I love and miss you..... Mom...

Just catching up, Lisa, and am saddened to hear of your loss. Our children are supposed to outlive us; they are our legacy, and the pain must be overwhelming at times. Like all your friends here on the WU, through empathy of caring, I feel some of that pain and hope that it alleviates a little of yours. My wish for you is that time will pass, the best memories will surface, and you will be able to laugh and remember the funniest, dearest and most meaningful moments with him clearly and without the acute pain of recent loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Quoting gusbuster:
Who would know the babys breath,
but the one she carried beneath her breast.
Closer than skin she carried him within,
each moment in time feeling his life begin
What beautiful planning of God's life plan
to carry a son, and care for him, until a man.
But, he will always be tied by the invisible bond
that was created when she became his mom.
To soon to say goodbye, it was just yesterday i saw you at play,
and yet, now gone you are, sweet memories collected each day.
My grief is great because i loved you so deep
for my love will be with you, as forever you sleep.
Who can explain a mother's love and loyalty,
but to know she will be there, for all eternity.
Mother's love, a special gift, his memory captured in green
from her heart, Shannon, mom's pleasure and dream

To Love, the greatest gift.






That was beautiful. My son Christopher stood here as I read it to him and really liked that too. Thank you so much

About Feather3

Feather3

Have lived on the Mendocino coast of California for almost 29 years. I have sold some photos, so I guess that makes me a freelance professional? :)I hope you enjoy these! My passion in art is drawing in pen and ink: birds. I have severe carpal tunnel that, while it seems to be getting better, has made it difficult to draw the smaller, finer details I was used to doing before - so in 2006, I took up photography and in July of 2012, the FujiFilm FinePix HS25 XD came into my life :) - It is an amazing piece of equipment -- with many features including a 30X wide-angle capability that has simply astound me time after time........I have been drawing again, however, and am thankful! :) Exercises for the carpal tunnel nerve have helped *tremendously* thanks for a few folks here on WU! :) U NO HOOOO U R ....As a former wildlife rehabilitator (1986-2003), I frequently will receive calls to rescue wild birds - there are a few shots of these in my gallery, but I prefer to catch and turn in to a local vet or another rehabber, or catch and release, as the case may be, without a lot of stress to the critter by taking photos of an injured, scared animal.In my life I have also been a naturalist for a local nature center and have led nature hikes to identify area plant life as well as wildlife. It is from this perspective that I enjoy sharing my photos of the same, not having had the pleasure during my short stay at the nature center, but loving it all nonetheless. I think WunderGround is a lot of fun and have been enjoying this site tremendously - meeting other photog's from all over the world is one of the best - but seeing their photos! WOW! :)Be sure to visit my website - launched on 09/09/09, called Sunrise Sea Glass! Click on my website link to visit
