    Welcome back, your story brought a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat.

    I can't imagine what it must be like to lose child - I don't suppose you ever get over it.

    I will give my little star an extra hug when he gets home from school

    There arestill things that remind me from time to time about your loss... His story is a big part of the Gauge's history. We have had a few members pass on, but he was the only one here who never really had a chance at enjoying life

    That makes it harder...and the memories more fonder.....

    Don't be a stranger, stop back as much as you can...

    Scooby, glad to hear from you again. Hang in there and hold the rest of your family close, while not forgetting the little guy who is gone. I can't help but remembering King David's response in the Old Testament when his first baby with Bathsheba died. He said, "He (the baby) won't come to me, but someday I will go to him."

    God bless you and your wife. I hope that this anniversary becomes a little easier with each passing year but I know you'll always feel his loss. Thanks for checking in.

    Scooby...I still remember your lasts posts when he passed away. I know words can do little to heal that wound, but getting "in the saddle" will help to ease the pain. I'm glad to see you're back. My best wishes to you and the family.

    That is one thing that has not left my mind was your son. Even though we never got to meet him, he was a part of our lives here on the gauge. Have been wondering where you have been but reading above sure does explain. No matter how old we all get I am sure we will all still remember your son. Stay Safe Buddy.
