In Memoriam of Christian

In Loving Memory of Christian Taylor Ward June 7, 2001 - April 14, 2007 Its hard to believe that nearly eight weeks have passed since my little man went home, but its so much harder to believe that he only celebrated five birthdays while he was here. Christian you were a conqueror, an explorer, a genius in a tiny body, a humanitarian, a comedian, an inspiration and my effervescent baby. As I celebrate your 6th birthday today, I am reminded of the day you were born. You came in to this world with a bang and it seemed like in a flash you were gone. You changed me forever and I know Heaven rejoices over you, but my son, I cannot wait until I can see you again. Happy Birthday to you, my sweet and precious child, with you I was well pleased. +
