Samuel's Birthday Celebration

Samuel's birthday was Tuesday...he would have been 20. I wanted to celebrate Samuel's birthday, his life. I didn't want it to be a sad day, so I decided I wanted to be at the beach. The beach is my favorite place. Fonzy, the boys and I took the day off of school and work and headed to beach for our celebration. The boys wrote letters to Samuel and we stuck them inside balloons that we sent up to Heaven....20 balloons.

THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! ALWAYS KEEP SAMUEL IN YOUR HEART AND MIND WHICH I KNOW U WILL!!

Saida,

Ever since I’ve known you, you have always touched my heart in so many different ways I can’t explain. Even though we don’t see each other, I know you will always be there for me when I need you. You are the definition of a true friend and I thank God that he thought so much of me to send me a friend that can reach out over miles and make me feel like you’re right next to me! I love you girl.
