To Tommy.

 Saturday August 11, 2012
 The day you joined us for Eternity.
Don't worry, you were always with us.
And if something would have happened and we
would have been separated before this day?

Trust me.

I would have moved Heaven and Earth
to make you mine for Eternity. 
 Daddy carried you in, 2 made you a tie.
And 2 and 3 and 4 were SO excited to wait with you in the Children's room.

They helped you get dressed, and they walked in with you.

Trust me, Tommy, when I say that there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

You sauntered in with your baby swagger and 
ran to me and Daddy.

And you were so good the entire time.

I was so worried that you would squak.

But you didn't.  You were good.
So good. 
 And now we are an official Eternal family of 7.

Don't worry, we will have a little brother for you soon.
You need a brother.
And then you both will need another brother.

And you will have them. 
 But today?  Today will go down as one of the all-time highs of my life.
The Temple was never so spiritual.
You were never so beautiful.
Daddy is going to get mad at me for saying this,
because you are a future quarterback and all,
but I could swear you were glowing.

I'm serious.

Completely glowing. 
 My sweet baby... I love you SO much.
I have said my entire life that biology is over-rated.
Hughes has heard it so much that he can probably feel me
saying it right now and he is rolling his eyes as we speak.

But now he believes me.
He knows.

Because you are ours. 
To Eternity and Beyond.
