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

I actually just found this picture from last summer's vacation. I love it. I am usually behind the camera.
We were at the Grand Canyon and I wouldn't let Mark down, lest he fall of a cliff! I guess that they can't fence the whole thing!

Mark was hardly ever without his pacifier...we didn't care.
My two handsome boys!

This is our "Mark the Shark". We loved that nickname for him last summer. We found these super cute lifejackets and just had to have them. A shark for Mark and a goldfish for Macy.
This is a really difficult picture for me to look at since he was wearing this lifejacket just minutes before his accident. It reminds me how much he loved the water.

Mark was the best little brother ever. His sisters sure do miss him.

What I wouldn't give to be able to give him more "joosh", as he called it, and look into those beautiful brown eyes.
I miss him.


  1. keep writing, posting pictures, remembering, its good for you, (us) Its a way to allow the sorrow to flow....


  2. I know what you mean. If we could only turn back time. We can only stand still or go forward though. Even as painful as the passage of time sometimes is, moving forward is better than standing still. It brings us closer to the moment when we will get to look again into those beautiful eyes that we miss so much and be in the presence of the One who carries us when we don't feel like taking the steps forward. Those thoughts make me want to run ahead.
