A year ago today...



Seth's first "cleaned up" pictured. Excuse the date.. I had mis-set my camera and didn't realize it until later.

Happy Birthday, sweet, sweet Seth. We miss you. The kids sent helium balloons to Heaven. Kayleigh was actually quite sad to see her Sponge Bob mylar balloon float into the sky.. Cary & Sean didn't have the same reaction to the Sesame street bunch and the multiple candled cake balloon heading off into the blue yonder..

I've spent some time today thinking about a birthday party with Jesus.. Can't quite wrap my brain around it.

Yesterday someone said "Wow, a year, doesn't it seem like a lifetime ago?"

Yes, it WAS a lifetime ago. Seth's lifetime.. and then some.

Happy Birthday, sweet Seth. He may not physically be in our lives anymore, but he is certainly emotionally etched in my heart forever.

"The Little Angel God So Loved-"
on the day he was conceieved, on the day he was born, on the day God choose to take him home and every day since. Seth will ALWAYS be loved by his family, friends and forever by his sweet Jesus.
I think Seth had a very special birthday sitting above the clouds, waving down below to let you know he really is ok. Prayers my friend

Kathryn, I've been sick and off work, but knew that Seth's birthday was coming, so I've been praying extra hard, and trust that you've in some way been able to feel the love and support of those who care and love you. Happy birthday Seth! It sounds like he have very "proper" celebration with his family! Love you -- Grandma Peggy

Happy belated birthday to a beautiful little guy!

I can only imagine what kind of celebration he had in heaven, but I'm willing to bet Jeffrey was there :)

Hugs,
Helen

Kathryn, I thought of Seth all day on the 27th. I remembered when he was born and hearing all about it. I thought about how much he's touched my life and my heart. ETW said it best... he is etched in my heart forever.
