My darling Zev,

I remember clear as day our conversation the weekend before your death…you were anxious for springtime, and I told you that the first official day of spring was less than a month away, which made you very happy. We even looked ahead on your horse calendar. How can it be that was a whole year ago? It seems unreal.

My week has been a veritable flood of memories. It astounds me how I recall things so vividly — it is as if I am reliving the moments, complete with emotion, sight, smell, and sound. Some of my favorites are…

When you received your personalized thank you card from Locks of Love, telling me how it made you want to cry for happiness that you helped a child with cancer.

Sledding and laughing with Dad & Auntie at Christmas.

Hearing you ask, so very sweetly, if we could go on a ‘trash duty’ walk.

Holding your hand.

When you’d hide from me at the end of the school day, so that when I walked in the door, I would have to look for you. Oh, the joy when you would jump out at me, saying ‘Mommy!’

Auntie Lori is right — your heart was as big as the moon! And your goodness and love endures. There are so many people that honor you daily in their thoughts and actions.

I have so many memories that I will cherish all the days of my life. Thank you my ‘lil punkin head. Thank you for giving me the greatest gift ever — your deep, unconditional love.

Loving and missing you intensely from this body that holds me,

Mama
