My Dear Son,
I will never be happier than the day you were born. For one short hour, our family was complete. You and your sister are the most precious things that your daddy and I have ever had.
I will never be sadder than I am now, saying goodbye to you.
But, you have an important job to do, Mr. Spyder. We need you to watch over your sister. You did such a good job of taking care of her before you were born that I know you’re up for the task. She will be lonely without you. She’ll know that she’s missing you. When she gets scared or feels alone, please stay close to her. Be her hero.
As for your daddy and me, we miss you so much already. If it were possible, I would have kept you safe inside of me forever, but I couldn’t. I had to let you go. I wish I had a lifetime to show you my love, but I had only an hour. I hope you felt it. I will live my life to honor you.
Be listening for me – I will never stop talking to you. I will never stop thinking of you, and I will never stop loving you. You are my hero, little Spyder.
Until I can hold you in my arms again, be strong and be at peace.
Love always and forever,
