Happy Birthday Jonah!

Today, seven years ago, a beautiful little boy graced our lives with his birth and his death.

We celebrate each year by throwing some very special stones in the ocean.

We gave each person who attended Jonah's funeral one of these stones and the scroll below. Every year on his birthday we each toss a stone in the ocean to remember him.

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for visiting Gavin's site! After reading your site, I'm wishing that we lived closer to one another, I have a feeling we could become great friends!

Now...Happy Birthday to your sweet Jonah! What a precious boy and gift from the Lord! I'm sure your heart aches for him and I am so sorry for this, but what a blessing to know that he is in the best place that one could be and that one day you will meet again! God Bless You!

I'll be back to visit again! :)

Thanks for posting this, Sandi, and for sharing your sweet little boy with us. I love the idea with the stones. I bet that is a really precious tradition for your kids (and you too).
