Today marks the sixth week since you left my life and took a piece of me with you. It is hard for me to believe that you have been gone six weeks and that I have lived six weeks without your precious face and endless smiles and all the magnificent joy you brought into our lives. You are so missed my angel boy, so, so missed!! You were in our lives for such a short while. Time just flew by and we took for granted that you would be here for so much longer. Remember how protective I was of you. Always fearful that something would happen to you. Well I was that way because I loved and still love you so much. I just couldn't imagine a day without you in my life, but in the end I couldn't protect you from cancer. The one thing I couldn't do.
I hope you are happy and healthy - that is what a mother wants most for her beloved child - that is what you were my Benjamin boy and I grieve you like the loss of a child. It hurts so deep. I will be sending a balloon today so that you can catch it in heaven and play with it until I send you the next one. Love you forever and ever, and ever my Benjamin boy.
"To Where You Are"
Who can say for certain maybe you're still here. I feel you all around me. Your memory's so clear. Deep in the stillness, I can hear you speak. You're still an inspiration. Can it be that you are my forever Love. And you are watching over me from up above!
Fly me up to where you are beyond the distant star. I wish upon tonight to see you smile! If only for a while to know you're there. A breath away is not far to where you are.
Are you gently sleeping here inside my dream? And isn't faith believing all power can't be seen. As my heart holds you just one beat away, I cherish all you gave me everyday!
'Cause you are my Forever Love watching me from up above and I believe that Angels breathe and that love will live on and never leave!
Fly me up to where you are, beyond the distant star! I wish upon tonight to see you smile if only for a while to know you're there! A breath away's not far to where you are!
I know you're there! A breath away is not far to where you are!

Cancer makes us feel so helpless, doesn't it. I lost my schnauzer Molly to malignant oral melanoma just a short 9 months ago. From the time she was diagnosed until we helped her to the Bridge was just a very short 6 weeks.
I love the fact that you are sending Bennie a balloon today. I can just see him catching it and parading around the Bridge with it.

I can definitely relate to how you are feeling today - it is my Cheeseburger's 2 month Bridge Day today. I also lost Cheesey to cancer. I too believe our babies are once again happy, strong, and healthy. I know in my dreams of Cheese he always looks like so well, and not sick. I love the idea of sending up the balloon for Bennie - that is so sweet. I am planning to do that for Cheese on his birthday in August. I also find it so helpful to post stories and pictures about our babies here - it is wonderful that everyone can share how special and precious they were. HAPPY 6 Week Bridge Day Bennie!!! Your Mom Loves You So Very Much! Dee >^..^< Cheeseburger's Mom firstname.lastname@example.org Dee + Cheeseburger = LOVE

It hardly seems possible that it is already your precious Bennie's sixth week BridgeDay. I know your heart is still so heavy with grief and you miss him so. I think of you often, and hope you are doing well. Your beautiful letter and poem to Bennie brought tears to my eyes. Stay strong, Maria, and know your boy is still right beside you in spirit. HAPPY 6TH WEEK BRIDGEDAY, PRECIOUS BENNIE!! ENJOY YOUR PARTY AND EAT ALL THE TREATS YOU WANT, INCLUDING MOLLY'S BISCUITS! VISIT YOUR MOM IN HER DREAMS SO SHE WILL KNOW YOU ARE STILL RIGHT BESIDE HER EVERY DAY. Sending big healing hugs to you, Melissa Betsy's forever mom
