what would've been my oldest son's 24th birthday

07-21-88 - 09-25-09

Love and miss you every single day.

Age 6 and showing his true personality ~

Such a handsome young man with beautiful blue eyes
celebrating his 15th birthday

One of the last photos we have of Phil, on his 21st birthday

Phil's memory shelf that I made this past week


  1. He's such a handsome young man. They really do grow up fast!

  2. Oh Mel, I can only imagine how hard this has been. I hope you are finding comfort in the happy memories.

  3. So sorry for your loss, Melanie. I love the idea of a memory shelf. It must have been hard putting it together, but everything is so special and has true meaning. A lovely way to honor your son. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  4. Melanie, the memory shelf is very special, as I'm sure your son was.
    Blessings, Brenda

  5. Hi Melanie;
    My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. What a beautiful son! Love and Hugs, Nana

  6. Seems like he grew up along with Time on CHL while we chatted away. Your memory shelf is a beautiful way to remember him. He is never farther than your own heart each day Melanie. Wish I could stop by and give you a big hug.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  7. Bless your heart. What an unfair thing. Your memory shelf is such a loving tribute.
