On September 25, 2009, my world as I knew it came to an end. My oldest son, Phil, pictured below in the green striped shirt, passed away unexpectedly. This past year has flown by in a blur. People ask me how we get through each day and go on with our lives, and all I can say is that I simply get up and put one foot in front of the other because I have to. I miss my son so much and think about him a million times a day. There will forever be a hole in my heart.
In loving memory of Philip Thomas Riley
