I could not give up writing about our life and Elliott. This has always been something that kept me going and gave me an outlet for the good and the bad. I am hoping to find a following but if not, I still can say what I need to say.
Today is Elliott's graduation. He will be there in spirit. And according to some, he really MAY be there. I have a tendency to believe this but I have not had the "proof" yet. Taking my camera with me to capture you just in case (it's ok people, I am not insane, just hopeful) We will have LOTS of Kleenex. Mrs Wise will be putting your flower on your chair and Mommy will bring it home to dry out and put in your book that I will begin working on in the fall. Your best buddy Stephen is graduating today as well, 18 chairs away from yours. Thank God you two were best friends. He helps Mom and Dad so much. In fact, he will be staying with us as of Tuesday. No one better to have around and remember you. It will be VERY hot today in a crowded gym so please have mercy on your old parents and shoot a breeze through the room sometimes. All I want to say right now is just how much you are loved, today and everyday. Not a day, a moment or a second you are NOT on our minds. We talk about you all the time, shed many many tears and sometimes laughter. And my conversations with you are sometimes the highlight of my day. But know that your daddy and I have grown closer than ever, we love each other and together we will get through this part of our lives until we are with you again. So enjoy watching your graduation today, laugh you butt off at the stupid stuff and cry a little tear when necessary. I heard at least one of the speeches has you in it. We love you Elliott lee Aldrich. Until next time, Hugs, Kisses and Pokemon wishes.

Love you baby,
