I am beyond devastated. There will never be another like him. He was half of my heart and soul.
There is a stillness in our home that was never there before. A void. A vacuum.
My sweet Spawn II. No more surprise visits to me at work to bring me a milkshake. No more Georgia Bulldogs ringtone on my cell announcing your calls. No more impromptu EZE crumpin or crazy, random raps. No more thrice weekly visits to San Marcos for steak quesadillas and cheese dip and visits to Jose’, your hermano.
To me you personified this proverb: When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.
The world….YOUR world….is crying.
You are the best 16 year old a momma ever had…..
