We’re still trying to cope with why God took you away.
But some things just aren’t meant for us to understand.
So we’ll focus on our memories of you and know it is God’s plan.
You were so special and your life was such a gift to us each year.
We hope you know how much we truly loved you, dear.
Fifteen years ago, you came into our lives and filled each day with laughter and joy.
We are so proud to call you “Son” – you were a terrific boy!
So quickly you grew from a baby, to boy, to young man, growing taller each day.
We loved to watch you excel in school and to cheer you on in the sports you’d play.
We were honored to see you lend a helping hand, whenever you saw a need.
A caring big brother, mentor, fundraiser and junior firefighter – you did so many good deeds!
Life isn’t the same without you here; we miss you with every beat of our hearts.
It is hard not having you with us and being so far apart.
But we feel your presence daily and see you smiling down from Heaven above.
You continue to inspire, to touch so many, we all can feel your love.
Your life was a legacy, and to keep your memory alive we will proudly share your story.
We know you’re spending this birthday in Heaven and you deserve that honor and glory.
We hope God knows how special an angel he’s chosen in bringing you there.
Happy 15th Birthday, Austin. We love and miss you, “Blair Bear”.
