I can't believe this has been our second year walking in your honor outside of NYC for SIDS. This year we were joined by your heaven buddy Noah's family. We all walked in your honor. We are so thankful for the friends and family that came to walk in your honor and donated to the CJ Foundation in your honor. Special shout out to my friend Alyson who I haven't seen since COLLEGE who came to walk with us. Alyson it was so great to see you and I was so touched by your presence.
Owen, I hope you and Noah are playing baseball in heaven or at least rolling a ball back and forth to each other. I can't believe you have been gone over a year and I am sure I will say that EVERY day until we meet again. You are my first thought in the morning and my last thought before I go to sleep at night. I always blow a kiss to your picture and one to you in heaven before I close my eyes after I put your brothers and sister to sleep.
Next weekend your Daddy is running the NYC in your honor. Please be with him every step of the way as I know it will be a tough day for him and all of us as we remember your sweet sweet spirit. I know the sun will shine on all of us.
We all love and miss you so much.
Your one and only mom
Our Little Warrior Owen
This blog is dedicated to our little sunshine angel Owen. We named him Owen because it means little warrior and we knew he would have to be with two older brothers. He was our little sunshine and his heart stopped beating unexpectedly on his 5 month birthday. We are devastated by the loss of our little guy. Hopefully, this blog will give readers a sense of what a beautiful spirit he was, how he completed our family and will help to keep his memory alive. We hope this gives light into our grieving process and can help other families that suffer a similar tragic loss.
