Flashback Friday-Shared Birthday




I just love looking back through pictures. I smile when I come across one that brings with it a special memory. Today's flashback picture does just that. This is a picture of my son Brandon sitting on my Uncle Jay's lap. Although the picture quality is not that great, I knew I had to share it. You see, Brandon and Jay had such a sweet relationship. They would just stare into each others eyes every time they saw each other. Brandon was born on Jay's birthday and Jay loved to remind me of that every time I saw him. Their birthday is coming up on February 19.

Jay passed away in 2000. He had Down Syndrome so we were very lucky to have him with us for that long. He was a very special man. He loved everyone and everyone loved him! He always had a great big hug and kiss for us whenever we would see him. We all miss him so much....
