Gavin Owens,a tiny but mighty fighter earned his wings at 10:43 pm this evening.My family and I fell hopelessly in love with this little guy in July of 2008,after his beautiful momma left a comment on Zoey's blog.The picture you see above was one of the first I ever saw of Gavin.I was mesmerized and captivated by his vibrant blue eyes and his most determined,fighting spirit.I rarely missed a day checking on Gavin.Even when Zoey was in treatment this last year and I would barely be able to get off a post,I still needed to check in on my little East Coast boyfriend before I headed to bed.My older girls loved him as well.They often would call and say,"Oh Mom,did you see the post today about Gavin.?"How is it that you can love someone that you have never even met?That question was asked of me the other day.I didn't have the answer then.I still don't but I did love him.I will miss him.He fought valiantly.Harder then a 3 year old should have to fight.No more fight little guy.
I heard this song for the very first time at my friend Laura's son Luke's,memorial service.Beautiful and so absolutely heartbreaking.Today I thought of Baby Luke and then of Thomas, as he also had it played at his service and now Gavin ...
Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you
Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Remember,pause my blog music if you want to listen.
