Three Years Ago

Dear Gavin,

Three years ago today we did the hardest thing we have ever had to do. We laid by your side as you made your return to our Father in Heaven. I am sure there was great joy in your return to heaven - but we were left grief stricken and mourning your impending absence from our family. We knew we would miss you so much - but we also knew that we would see you again. We believe in eternal families. We know that you will be our son forever.

Today we spent the morning at the Temple and then we packed up to go to Disneyland with your brother Jack. We wish we were taking you along with us. But we will take you in our hearts.

Please know that we love you and we miss you. Please know that we are trying to stay strong so that we can all be together again. Days like today are difficult. It seems as though I relive and remember every moment. We are just so grateful for the knowledge we have and the love we share.

Your sister - Trish - sent me the link to your blog. We lost our 20 month old son - Bennett - in his sleep 2 weeks ago. We know we will see him again and know that he can be ours forever but the grief is so overwhelming right now.
It lifts my heart to hear of your Faith and Joy in such heartache. I too know that we have a loving Heavenly Father that watches out for us and will give us the strength needed to bear such heartache.
Prayers and Love for you -
Amanda (aka "Sister Kjar", comp to Trish on her mission)
