This is a letter I wrote to my son on the day of his recieving...

"Riley,

This is a day I never thought I would have to go through. The moment I say your sweet face I knew you would do great things and touch many lives. You did both in the 3 short weeks you were with us. You let me see there is still good in this world. I can now say I understand the unconditional love that a mother feels for their child. I really wish I could have had more time to love you and show you the good things in life...I wish I could have had more time to be your Mommie. But I know now you don't have to face the cruelities of this world and you will never know anymore pain. I can't say I'm not selfish and want you back here with your Daddie and me, but I know you are with angels now and that you are safe. While on earth you were my sweet Riley and now you are my sweet angel.

Love, Mommie"
