Digital Era

Tucker got a (kids' version) digital camera for his birthday in September. Really, he just wanted to be able to snap pictures and see them on the screen.

Today, he was scrolling through some pictures on there, since we've never deleted any. Who knows the picture journey that camera holds?

With a gasp, he ran to me. He showed me a picture of Robb, with his back turned, standing at the sink and washing dishes.

Tuck had seen that as memorable in the moment, and he snapped a picture.

"Mommy, look! It's Daddy! He was alive then."

"He sure was, kiddo."

"I miss him, Mommy."

"Me, too, kiddo."

"But now he's in heaven. All fixed."

He sure is.

It's these seemingly simple things that cause me to tear up, Tricia. But you remind me to never stop holding your family in my prayers. You're already a permanent fixture in my heart.

How beautiful that your son was able to enjoy such a memory. He sounds like a wonderful young man.

You're all in my prayers every day.
