Happy Birthday Ben

We went to visit Ben today.

Ben was born and passed away six years ago today. Not a day has gone by since that we have not thought about him. A true guardian angel that has kept careful watch over his little brother and in ways you wouldn’t believe has sent messages when we need them that things will be ok.

Someday I’ll tell you how he does it, but I’ve always thought that was material better suited for a book than a blog.

So instead I’m going to spend the rest of the day quietly with my family. Cooking a nice dinner and thinking back on these last six years.

We miss you Ben, and we always will.


  1. Peace to you precious family.

    You know, I had no idea Eric and Karin. Seems like I should have. Feel horrible that I didn’t.

    A book? Most definitely.

    I am a firm believer that there are angels amongst us. I just know there are and your Ben, still with you, I am certain of that.

  2. Even though we were on vacation this past week, ( and returned home today Sept 23rd)We both said a prayer for Ben as we attended Mass last night. I certainly remembered Ben and the date he returned to Heaven.
    yYou have your own very special Angel. Love you all, Grandmama & Grandpa Andy
