    Dear Maxwell,
    Today Nana and I walked to the Galleria. We missed so much strolling with you. We would stop and swing you in Iroquois Park, and enjoy your glee and smiles. We missed strolling to the Galleria and showing the fountains to you. We would see if you noticed other babies. We would stop in the toy store and Nana and I would plan future book and toy purchases. There was a magnetic building set I planned to get for you. Nana always had special snacks for you to enjoy. Sometimes you would fall asleep, sometimes you were wide awake. You gave us so much joy. You are always our treasure. You are always in our heart and prayers.

    Wednesdays and Sundays are not the same without you. I miss holding and swinging you around, and singing to you. Your smiles and laughter made me feel so happy. It was fun to see you imitate me make my various “vroom-vroom” sounds for your little toy trucks. I miss getting down on the floor and playing with you. I miss holding you and showing you the ceiling light fixtures and fans. You were a budding illumination engineer. You would swing your head around so quickly when something caught your attention. I loved how you would take me or Nana for a walk holding a hand while holding and pushing your truck walker. We were going hand in hand, together. You wanted me to be with you. You will always be with me. Love.

  5. Oh Maxwell,
    Three months ago you left us. There is a large hole in my heart. I pray every day for you, and for us. I pray you are in heaven, and are experiencing eternal joy and love. I pray you are with your great grandparents Biseda and Karr. You are a part of me, and a part of Nana, too. I see you in the babes and toddlers we see in our regular walks. It does me no good wishing what might have been. Our grief is a part of us. You are missed, and we love you so much. You alone made us grandparents, and we are so grateful. We love you, Max.

  6. Max,
    So many things we were looking forward to do with you. I wonder what Halloween costume your mommy and daddy would have for you. I was looking forward to you walking and running around. I miss being on the floor and playing trucks with you. Our lives will not be the same. You are always our precious treasure. We love you forever. Hugs and kisses.

  7. Max,
    I bet you would have liked turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, gravy, and all the additional fixings for Thanksgiving! We love and miss you so much.

  8. Maxwell,
    Yesterday we attended a Funeral Mass for our neighbor. We were crying for you, and praying for you, too. We love you.

  9. Merry Christmas, Maxwell.
    Although I cannot hold you, kiss you, or play with you, you are with me. In this season of peace, you radiate love and joy. You blessed our lives, and we are thankful for you.

  10. Dear Max,
    You were exceedingly brave. You suffered, yet you expressed such love and joy when we were with you. You radiated love and goodness. You are with us, and we cherish you.

  11. Dear Maxwell,
    It is six months since you left us. Sometimes it seems like a long time has passed; sometimes it seems like a few days. You are always with me in my mind. I think about you every day, and you are in my daily prayers. As a small tribute to your lasting generosity, I have continuously worn the Donate Life bracelet I received on your behalf. I will cherish you always.

  12. Max,
    It has been eight months since we said goodbye. It is tough for us without you. Nana and I love you so much.

  13. Maxy,
    It’s been nine difficult months since you went to heaven. I just want to wish you a Happy Easter! I miss you, Bright Eyes.

  14. Dear Maxwell,
    I wish I was celebrating your second birthday with you today. Instead, I am celebrating your life, and what might have been. You are precious, unique, and our joy in life. I treasure the time Nana and I were with you, seeing you grow each week. You expressed your love to us, and we will always remember you. We pray we will be reunited with you. You are our bright, shining star. We love you so much.

  15. Ten months ago, you went to be with God. It has been hard to accept that. We treasure our time with you and love you. That will never change.

  16. Maxwell,
    You were created through love, you were nurtured with love, and you are dearly missed with love. This year has been awful without you. This year long mourning period has come to and end, but our loss remains. I pray you are with God and our dear family members. I cherish our time together and always hold you in my mind. Words escape me, love.

  17. Max,
    I have continuously worn the “Donate Life” bracelet I received in your memory for this painful past year. I will take it off now and try very hard to concentrate on celebrating your life. It is easy to remember the many good days when Nana and I were at your home, taking care of you in place of Brent and Shan, and also Tracy. We love you and pray for you each day. You are always with Nana and me.

  18. Max,
    Another grandparents’ day has come and gone. We love you and miss you so much. You are so special, and we cherish the time we had with you. Love and peace.

    And if I go,
    while you’re still here…
    Know that I live on,
    vibrating to a different measure
    -behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
    You will not see me,
    so you must have faith.
    I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
    -both aware of each other.
    Until then, live your life to its fullest.
    And when you need me,
    Just whisper my name in your heart,
    …I will be there.
