There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were.

Happy Birthday Son

Happy Birthday Mark...words aren't enough to tell you how much we love you and miss you.


  1. Happy Birthday Sweet boy, I know you and the angels are celebrating at the feet of Jesus!!!

  2. Lili told me today that Mark was having cake with Jesus and Grandpa Mike.
    We will celebrate with him again one day!
    Love you Angie!

  3. We love you Zurovecs - sharing smiles and tears with you on this special day!
    Amy and Chris

  4. You were in our thoughts and prayers all day long. I was driving to town this afternoon and Aleah yelled.."mommy I see baby Mark he's in the clouds with an angel." My eyes are full of tears as I think about him and your deep loss. We love you guys so much.

  5. You are such an awesome mom to have the strength to post these amazing and beautiful pictures Angie. Praying for comfort and reassurance for you and Joe.

  6. Angie and Joe, your family has been in my thoughts and prayers these last couple of weeks as I know you are remembering Mark's birthday and soon the anniversary of your loss of Mark on this earth. Mark and I share the same birthday so I especially remember him on that day. It does not ever get easier, but you are blessed with God's love and grace and his promise of a homecoming. We know that God tells us He uses every thing for Good. I don't think He thinks of our heartaches and losses as good, but because of His goodness, He can use them to further his kingdom. This is evident in your writings on this blog. You have taken your grief and used it to spread God's word and to comfort those who have experienced loss. Your words on this blog show people how you have taken this unimagineable grief and not turned away from God, but seek comfort from Him and Him alone.
    We love you all, Kelly

  7. Mark is just beautiful. His life on earth was filled with love and beauty and now his life in heaven is filled with pleasures forever more. I continue to pray for you and your family as God brings you to mind - which is quite often. I hope you're heart is healing more and more every day.

  8. Angie, You and your beautiful family are always in my thoughts and prayers! I think of you often and just want to reach through the computer as I read your blog and give you a hug!! ::HUGS::

  9. I just got back from my vacation adventure and I see you and the family are on yours now. I thought much of you all while I was gone, especially on Mark's birthday. Your courage and strength to share your inner most hurts and thoughts will be used by God to encourage others going through a loss like yours that is so unimaginable to those of us who haven't suffered the loss of our child. I think and pray for you, Joe and the girls often.
