Jordan's 23rd Birthday
« on: August 23, 2009, 05:45:17 PM »
8/24 at 6:05am. That is when he was born twenty three years ago. How am I going to go for the rest of my life without seeing him on his birthday? My heart is heavy today as the hours tick by and Jordan's birthday approaches. I love him so much. I miss him so much.

I have decided to have family and some close friends over for dinner and cake. I am making him a birthday cake as always. Just like last year, my husband and I had a disagreement about that. He feels as though there should not be a celebration because "Jordan is not here, he is in Heaven." I feel like I can not possibly go past that day and not celebrate his life. I absolutley refuse to not acknowledge his birthday and celebrate it. I have told people that if it makes them uncomfortable, they do not have to come, and I will not be offended. That includes my husband.


I am so sad. Thanks for listening.

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Jordan!

((((((((Tammy)))))))))))))

Thinking of you & your handsome Jordan on his 23rd Birthday. I hope Jordan sends you a sign to let you know that he is always near. There is nothing wrong in celebrating our children's lives and remembering them on one of the most important days of our lives..

Love,
Dena, Josh's Mom

Tammy, I will be thinking of you and your angel Jordan on his 23rd birthday. Every day is so terribly difficult without our angels and special dates are even harder.
I'm wishing for you to have a peaceful day, one where you and your husband can understand one another's needs and that Jordan sends you both a loving sign.
Keeping you close in my heart....Happy heavenly 23rd birthday Jordan!
XO Paula
XO Love to all my sisters & brothers-in-grief XO
Wishing you all peaceful moments, signs from your Angels & many blessings

((((((Tammy)))))))

My thoughts are with you today on your baby's special day, and I hope Jordon sends you a sign to let you know he is with you.
And, I pray that you and your husband will have peaceful moments although you both have different ways of remembering Jordon.

"Happy Heavenly Birthday Jordon"

This is so hard Tammy. And, I like you make my kids favorite foods and buy them presents on their birthdays. It's what I always did and I always will. I am their Mom and it is their special day, but I do understand your husband feeling differently. There is nothing easy about this. It's the pain, Tammy.

Holding you both close today and my love to you both,
Terry

Tammy I know how hard these special days are.  I give you credit for continuing to celebrate Jordan's birthday.  Please be patient with your husband as well all try to handle this difficult time in different ways.  May Jordan find a way to join you at the party.

Dear Tammy,
I am so sorry for your pain and loss. I sincerely wish that I could give you a hug and cry with you. It never ends, does it, this pain and loss? I wish you one day of peace..of complete and total peace. What a great mom you are, and he knows it.

Tammy - sorry it has taken me so long to write - your Jordan would be the same age as my nephew Chris - who would also be turning 23 this year (Dec. 1).. if he were still here..

I'm sending up very belated Happy Heavenly Birthday to Jordan.. I hope you felt him close by you on his very special day..

luv and hugs, Karen
