It took me quite a few years to open my heart again after loosing Tyler. I took a polaroid picture of him that my ex-MIL took and had it blown up to 5x7 size and then framed it in an 8x10 cherry frame with matting. Tyler has a nice cherry shelf of his own in my room, hanging on the wall next to my bed. My dh (not Tyler's dad) has been very supportive. For the past three years, my mom has given me earrings with Tyler's birthstone on his bday (march), in 2005 Tyler would have been 10..I will be creating a sort of mother's ring with Tyler's birthstone. I cannot wait. My dh also bought me one of those mothers necklaces with Tyler's birthstone in it. I also carry Tyler's mass card in my checkbook, wallet, and pocket calendar.
My mom has always had a picture of Tyler in her room as well, Nana's 2nd grandson...has to have a place for him.
My dad gave me new pics of the headstone with Tylers name on it after his dad died (all 3 are buried together...grandma/pa and Tyler) I waited 10 years for this...right before my grandpa died he gave my dad the okay to have Tyler's name on it.
DH, Tom (34)
Tyler 3-9-95 to 3-23-95 (26 wks severe pe/HELLP)
Hoping for a little miracle in 2005! (after TR surgery in 2004)
