Happy 12th Birthday Eli

I bELIeve this song says a lot of what my heart wants to say.  Today would have been our sons 12th Birthday.  To my family, and friends please take four minutes a just sit back and listen to this song as you watch the video I would like you to pray for my family.  My wife Ruth and Son Austin live a nightmare every day of our lives.    The pain in our hearts is unspeakable as our Eli is not on this earth for us to hug, hold, talk to, listen to his laugh, watch him play, see his smile, and just wonder what cool clothes he would wear as he would come down stairs.  You see this is not the normal life progression to lose a child is a pure devastation.  I also ask you not to look for your HERO’S in a baseball team, football team, or any other way, rather look across the room and see your HERO is right in front of you “your children”.  Life is short, and when my day comes I will join my son in Heaven but until then I will be the best husband I can be to my wife Ruth as we have had our up’s and down’s but I do love her.  I will stand by my son Austin’s side as I watch him grow into the amazing man I know he will become.  I will also not waver on my promise to carry out Eli’s wishes to find a cure for childhood cancer.  We miss you Eli Love Mom, Dad, and Big brother Austin.
