It's been four years....

Four years ago today, I woke up to the worst news of my life. Michael and Kyle's band, Any Given Moment, had been in a car crash outside of Macon on their way home from a concert in Savannah. Michael was gone. I had been up really late the night before at a party at one of my friends houses and saw that Kyle was calling around 3:30 and I didn't answer. I went to bed not thinking much of it and when I woke up in the morning I had many missed calls and my Mom was calling from Kansas saying Michael had died. Mom and Billy had just left and arrived in Kansas to visit my Aunt Susan, who was going through chemo for breast cancer, less than 8 hours before. Lucky for me, I was with one of my best friends and she drove me home and friends started coming over as soon as they heard the news.

Michael was the coolest guy that anyone could ever meet. He had a love for life that just lit up the room and he could make anyone laugh. He had a love for music that was so incredible and he and Kyle had an awesome band.

I love this picture because it just shows how much fun he was to be around.

This is a picture of the tattoo that right after he died. He had gotten the same on about two weeks before. After he died, I called the guy who did his and went and had him do mine also. The bruise is from my car accident in April. I know Michael was in my car that day and kept my safe and this bruise was from my seat belt, which actually broke in the accident. Michael wasn't wearing on in his accident. I also had just found out I was pregnant with Holden four days before.

I can't wait for my sweet baby Boy Holden Michael to get here so not only can I give him Michael's name as his middle name, but I can also tell him about how awesome he really was. I also have been buying any clothes that have guitars on them for Holden to wear. He has quite a few now and I can't wait to put them on him.

Michael we love you and miss you every day! I can't wait for the day I get to see you again and I know that you are looking down on us from Heaven.

Dear my sweet baby boy Holden,
This is a picture of you when you were still a bun in my oven cooking and getting bigger and stronger everyday. You Daddy and I am sooo excited for you to get here and to meet you! I can't wait to see who you look like and what your personality is like. I think we are mostly ready for you to be here and only have a few more "must-haves" to get before you get here. The cats are really starting to wonder what is going on around the house as your due date gets closer and closer. Right now we have 8 weeks left until your due date but it is fine with Daddy and I if you come a few weeks early so you can be here for Christmas and to see all of your aunts and uncles and your cousin Sophia. But you are only allowed to come early if you promise that you will be healthy and we can wake up Christmas morning at our house. I love you so much my sweet boy and can't wait for you to get here!
