Fifteen … yes … 15 … years ago you left us all behind.  You suffered with ill health for 17 years.  You left your pain behind … and can now breathe and run freely.  For that, I am forever grateful.   


My pain will always continue. 

Always I will miss you. 

Always I will love you. 

Always I will carry on your memory and your passion.

Here’s to my #2 baby boy!  Everyone that knew you misses you.

It’s funny. Well, it’s not “ha ha funny”. It’s a “this is uniquely weird” kind of funny. My middle child was born on Leap Day. He, as I’ve said before, had Cystic Fibrosis … and a double lung transplant … and a spirit & personality that was bigger than life. He was definitely what people would call an “old soul” and he touched more lives in his short 17 year life than most do in 80 – 90 years. I love him more than I can put into words, as I do all of my amazing children.

Anyway, he always had a way of making himself known and making someone to either be irate or laugh till they cried. The other day was apparently “National Wear Two Different Shoes Day”. I swear they did this in his memory because he used to do that just to see who would notice (amazingly very few did). Yesterday was “May the Fourth Be With You Day”. He’d have been all over that and probably would have showed up at work as a Storm Trooper. Today is Cinco De Mayo … and he’d have been eating chips and salsa, drinking beer, and making all the jokes about it. 


He dearly loved his kitty cats too. 

What’s ironic … he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 2 months of age 32 years ago TODAY … on Cinco De Mayo.  He always had a knack for hitting odd holidays, being born on Leap Day, being called for transplant on St Patrick’s Day … among MANY other similar incidences.
I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that there was a CF fundraiser last night in our hometown on “May the Fourth Be With You Day” … complete with Storm Troopers in attendance.

There are no coincidences in my not-so-humble opinion. 

Damn, I miss you, Keegan.

“Tears In Heaven”

Eric Clapton

Would you know my name

If I saw you in heaven?

Would it be the same

If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong

And carry on,

‘Cause I know I don’t belong

Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand

If I saw you in heaven?

Would you help me stand

If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way

Through night and day,

‘Cause I know I just can’t stay

Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,

Time can bend your knees.

Time can break your heart,

Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,

There’s peace, I’m sure,

And I know there’ll be no more

Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name

If I saw you in heaven?

Would it be the same

If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong

And carry on,

‘Cause I know I don’t belong

Here in heaven.
