Celebrating my Son in Heaven on his Birthday #Griefjourney #LifeafterLoss

I love my son Ricky so much. I wake up thinking of him and he is my last thought before falling off to sleep each night. Now that he is in Heaven, I knew that I would continue to honor him every single day and especially on his birthday: March 11.

My daughter and I drove to his favorite place, my parent’s house in Laurinburg.

What follows is a photo essay of our celebration of Ricky on this birthday:

Ricky’s Celebration Program. Due to COVID, my vaccinated parents and my COVID tested daughter I only were there.
I ordered butterflies for a butterfly release.
My father digs the hole where Ricky’s memorial tree, a Live Oak, will go.

My father was able to get them to fly off! My mother marvels at the scene.
Libations to celebrate the life of our beloved Ricky.

I will always honor my Angel Son. As long as I live. Happy 15th Birthday my son.
