I cannot believe that I am the mother of 39 year old! My first born son, Kenny, will celebrate his 39th birthday in heaven today. It's hard to believe that it was 19 years ago we celebrated his last birthday together.
I had hoped that over the last 19 years that Kenny's birthday would cause me less heartache. In the last few years remembering Kenny has become easier but I am still heartbroken that he is not here to celebraten with his family and friends, that he never had the chance to find his other half and have a family of his own. He's didn't get to know his wonderful sister in love, better or to know his adorable nephews.
Happy Heavenly 39th Birthday, Kenny! I love you with all my heart and miss you!
Just a few pictures from different stages in Kenny's life. My favorite is the one below from my sister's wedding a few months before Kenny passed away. It has both of my sons and my Dad in the background.
