Remembering Ben

This is not about food today, but about a special day in our lives... a day of remembering a son... a gift from God who we had for a short time in our lives.  Today is the anniversary of the day he left us and went to Heaven.  It's been 4 years, yet it seems like yesterday.  I lost my sister and my son within a year from each other.  A human life is never just gone.  They are there with you forever.  You can't ever remove them from your heart, or your memories and I know I will see them both again one day.  

How strange to see a life from the beginning to the end.  How strange to see the fruit of your womb gone before you.  How blessed we were to have known him and all the Lord did in our lives through his.  

1-13-83 a brand new soul was born into the world

Ben, Micah, Jesse, Josiah in the chair

Making music with good friends
(Psalm 73:26)  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Goodbye Ben.  See you soon! We love you and miss you!


  1. My prayers will be with you today. May you hold your memories close to you. You are correct. You will be with him again. May God bless you today and bring you great joy and peace.

  2. I'm so sorry. Blessings to you and your family on this very emotional day.

  3. Thank you Grace! God bless! :)

  4. The promise of heaven is such a powerful thing. Prayers to you and your family.

  5. Thanks for sharing his life with us. One day you will have to introduce me to him when we all finally make it home.

  6. Will be happy to do that Lisa. :)

  7. You made me cry. May God continue to be your very real comfort when you remember him. You are right - stroke your hand over your heart and you are stroking Ben's forehead. He is in your heart and in your garden of memories forever.

  8. What a loving and tender remembrance of Ben. I look forward to meeting him someday in Heaven, too.
    May the Lord continue to comfort you.

  9. @Rettakat, He does all the time. :) Thank you.

  10. A beautiful tribute to your beloved son, Ginny. Thinking of you.

    1. Thank you Megan! I don't know why, but this year for some reasons the memories are coming more and harder than usual, 6 years later! I've been having dreams about him lately.
