  1. Dear Berkley,

    I’m going to miss you, little man. I’m so glad I got to pick you up from your car seat after our trip to the Mexican restaraunt with your mom and aunts, carry you inside and relax for our movie night. I think I fell asleep on the couch before you did! Look over all of us until we pass and meet up again! You will be greatly missed my man. Know that you changed lives for the better when you entered this world! For now..


    I hope you are doing well and staying stong. Your son is making sure you behave, so you better not let him down! I’m always here to talk, don’t forget that. Keep your head up, you are loved :

  2. Becki,
    I haven’t seen you in so long, and I didn’t get to meet your little boy…your precious gift. But I feel like I know you and Berkley well, because of all the wonderful updates and pictures you blessed us with. I cannot imagine how devastated you must feel, but please know that you are surrounded by love and support, and that God is embracing you with His tender care. That sweet little guy is watching us from above, and he is in the protective arms of the Father. Take strength in that, and in the love of those around you. You’re in my thoughts.
    Much love,

  3. Berkley,
