Shelby Says, "It's Cold Outside"!

It was a bit cold outside today.
Shelby ran outside to potty then ran right back to the door
to come inside.  I had the camera ready for a photo!

Your Life Gave Us Memories Too Beautiful To Forget

In Memory of Richard Colt Hazlett
November 8, 1992 to March 10, 2016
What moves through us is a silence,
a quiet sadness,
a longing for one more day,
one more word,
one more touch, 
We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, 
or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, 
but little by little, 
we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived.
And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

Today Would Have Been Colt's 25th Birthday

Today would have been my son's 25th birthday.

Colt is not here to celebrate.
Acute Myleoid Leukemia (cancer) took him away on March 10, 2016.
My handsome, loving, kind, caring and wonderful son, was ripped from this world at the age of 23.
Very first photo of Colt.
I miss Colt so damn much.
The pain of losing him is so deeper than anything I have ever felt.
There are no words to even begin to describe how I feel.
A large piece of my heart and soul died the day Colt died.
Colt's last photo in life :(
I miss his wonderful smile and his laugh.
I miss hearing him say "Hi Mama".
I miss talking to him and I miss hearing his voice.
I miss hearing "I love Mama!".
I miss the "good morning", "good night" and "I miss you Mama", text.

I miss EVERYTHING about him.

I love you Colt.
