Every year you have been absent, we have tried to celebrate your birthday and have continued to keep cards and small gifts. Hopefully soon, you will be able to see those for yourself to see that you are always in our hearts and in our minds
This is the last actual birthday we spent together. You were 4 years old and you had many of your friends there for a party. You seemed so happy. Your Nana was there too. I hope you remember her. You adored each other.
As you can see from this collage, we always made sure we celebrated your birthday. Hoping and praying that the next one would be the one where we are reunited
Here are a few pictures from your 12th birthday

Not a day goes by without you in my mind and in my heart and I hope that you know that. I love you so much. I always have.. Always will.. Hope you have a wonderful day.
Thank you again for the messages and cards from family and friends. They really do mean so much. As always, I will keep every last one of them for her to read for herself when we are reunited..
ALWAYS loving you. FOREVER your Dad. One more day closer xxx
