My precious John:

Three years does not erase the pain we feel without you in our lives, Daddy and I mourn you and miss you every day. We are so thankful that God shared you with us for the 27 years of your earthly life. We cling to the assurance that we will be together again one day and long for that day. Just know how much we love you and miss you-- our precious miracle baby.

Daddy and Mother
