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.

The power of numbers and dates

Dear Owen,

Today you have been gone 3 years and 3 months and you would be 3 if you were here.  It hit me like a can of worms as I listened to Zac Brown's Bittersweet tonight.  It's bittersweet you see.  I am here enjoying my life on earth with your three siblings but you're not here with me.  I feel like Reilly is so close to Liam and adores him since he's her closest sibling in age here living with him.  I look at her and see you and dream of what it would be like for the two of you two play together, 15 months apart in age.  I see you in her. 

Tonight out of no where she asked me to sing Owens song at bedtime.  She must have known you were on my mind all day today.  Then when I put her down she asked to kiss your picture an extra time.  

I know your spirit lives on in all of us.  I miss you every second.  What would our life be like if you were still here with us? 

Three boys they would say.  Three boys I would smile.

Your one and only Mom
