Thirty seven years ago tonight my son Kevin was born. A healthy baby boy who graced my life for nine years. This was one of the last photographs taken of him before he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 1984. He was with us for nine months after that and then left this world.
I miss him every day, although I have tried not to get stuck in the trough of grief. Since then I've married again and had another wonderful son come into my life. But on his birthday every year I think of him and wonder what life would have brought him if he hadn't left so soon. He was a sweet and gentle boy and I send him my love on his birthday.
