Austin's 3

Austin turned 3!
We had a great time at Jungle Jims and Leatherbys.
 He loves Toy Story, Cars, and especially Thomas the Train.
 He got a train table, Thomas the train, and a special train named Connor.
 He is getting quite the personality.  Talking more with phrases such as:  I like it, and go away!
He gives awesome kisses, loves to read books, jump around the house, and plays with trucks, trains, and balls.
 We love you and had such a fun day with you, Happy Birthday!

A Blue-Eyed Superboy

A few years ago, sitting in the back row at church I met one amazing little boy named Connor.  Connor has the ability to speak.  Not the normal kind of speaking that you would think, but the ability to speak with his heart, his amazing blue eyes, and his mind.  He would tell me about nice things that he wanted for his mommy.  We had many special visits.  I visited for birthdays, Christmas,  pulling weeds and gardening, you visited us in the hospital with Austin, I visited you in the hospital.  Me and your mom had visits where we laughed, and visits where we cried.  It soon formed into one of the deepest, and best friendships in the world.  My heart shattered when I had to visit you for the last time.
Thank you for helping me find a true friend that I needed so much.  
Thank you for strengthening my testimony and I know I will see you again.
Elder Holland quoted
"That day when loved ones whom we knew to have disabilities in mortality will stand before us glorified and grand, breathtakingly perfect in body and mind. What a thrilling moment that will be! I do not know whether we will be happier for ourselves that we have witnessed such a miracle or happier for them that they are fully perfect and finally “free at last.”. 
I can't wait to see you again Connor. I love you and will miss you.
