Today is the saddest day of my life. I always used to say I can’t imagine how a mother feels when she loses a child. Today, I lost my baby boy, and I feel like someone pulled my heart out of my body. I wish I could have saved him from this cruel world with people without regard for life!! But I guess God wanted him to be with him, and he spoke louder than me. Ryan, I will always love you, and one day I will be with you again!
