Two Roads to Take; One Path

Dear Colton, It has been so long since I’ve sat here to write to you. I talk to you everyday in my head and blow you a kiss whenever I drive past Memorial Oaks on my way to work but it’s not the same as writing to you. Little did I know that I was…

Sweet Memories

A few weeks ago I received one of the best surprises. When we left the hospital after losing Colton, we knew that our nurses were going to put together a memory box of Colton and give it to us at a later date. After almost three months of slow healing this box arrived at the…

Fly Fly Away

Dear Colton, Well I actually did it. I got my first tattoo a few weeks ago. Some people may be surprised to know I never had a desire to get a tattoo especially since your dad is covered with them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of tattoos and how they can be…
