I have got nothing on my mind.
Nothing to remember.
Nothing to forget.
And I have got nothing to regret.
But I am all tied up on the inside
and no one knows quite what I have got.
And I know that on the outside
what I used to be, I'm not

You know, I have heard about people like me
but I never made the connection.
They walk one road to set them free
and find they have gone the wrong direction.
But there is no need for turning back
because all roads lead to where I stand,
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned.

Can you remember who I was?
Can you still feel it?
Can you find my pain?
Can you heal it?
Then lay your hands upon me now
Cast this darkness from my soul.
You alone can light my way
You alone can make me whole
once again.

We've walked both sides of every street
through all kinds of windy weather
but that was never our defeat
as long as we could walk together.
So there is no need for turning back
'cause all roads lead to where we stand
and I believe we'll walk them all
no matter what we may have planned. - Don McLean

I love you Joseph, angel from your birth to me, three years as one in Heaven today. I'm still breathing, still going on, still remembering you. You made me thankful for my life, for those I love and most of all, thankful for the time I had with you.

Always and Forever,

Thinking of you and your wonderful oldest son today. You and he have given me many gifts, and I'm so grateful to know you, and to know him, through you.
God bless you and Joe as you set out on this next adventure together. XO

Thank you for letting us share in your journey. I have followed you for some time now, I wish I had the opportunity to know Joseph in person, however you do a beautiful job of keeping his memory alive for us all. Thinking of you.

I've seen so many pics of Joseph but I've never seen that one of you holding him as a newborn. So beautiful. I love you my friend.
