Memories

21 years ago, my nephew JD passed on. I was given the extraordinary gift of taking care of him in the summer before he left this world. He'd wake me up in the morning in a game of peeking from his bed. I'd open my eyes, he'd hide. He would never want any of us out of his sight. At night I'd take him outside and hold him while he would look up at the stars in the sky. I'd sing quietly to him.

He touched so many in his short life. I only wish was that he would have continued living.

I am grateful that he and I crossed paths and that my sister trusted me enough take care of him for that short moment in my life....
