Until we meet Again Son,

Those special memories of you will always bring a smile.

If only I could have you back for just a little while,

Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do.

You always meant so much so very much and always will.

The fact that you’re no longer here will always cause me pain but,

You’re forever in my heart until we meet again.

Love always Mom, Dad & Noah
