This second anniversary of Ade’s death is very significant. Thanks to Father God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, I have done something, which on May 2, 2017, I didn’t think it would have ever been possible. I have survived two whole years without my oldest son, who was and still is someone as enormously important to me as life itself.
On April 30th, I will forever be reminded that this day in 2017 was the last time
Ade enjoyed his birthday in the land of the living. Additionally, I will forever be
reminded that the one flower I would love to see in full bloom in May—my son,
Ade—was instead plucked from the garden of life on May 2nd.
