    God Bless You, My Sweet Angel Boy!

    Today Daddy and I are getting our tattoos in honor of you! Daddy is getting the CDH ribbon with wings, a halo and your name on his bicep.

    Thank you for the sunshine and for the lovely breeze that cools us today! Daddy and Landon sends lots of hugs ...
