To my little man. Your birthday has come again. When you were born, that day was the best day of my life. No matter how many of your birthdays go by, you will forever be my little man. You’ll always be loved and missed more than words can explain.


Happy Birthday, my son, you’re not forgotten and you are so missed and loved.



Martin Michaud





Happy Birthday.


You should be 14 years old on March 16th. I think of you every day and I miss you so, so much. I often think about how big you’d be and what you’d like to do. I miss your smiling happy face, your hugs and kisses. For me, you’ll always be my little boy. I know that your life was short. I’m thankful that you loved life and you were happy.
