Happy Birthday, Luke!

As you may have noticed, we have encountered a lot of loss the past few years. A handful of friends have lost babies and young children for various reasons. Even today, some friends from college had to bury their baby boy who passed away 18 weeks into the pregnancy. So sad.

Saturday would have been the 3rd birthday of my friend Bernie's little boy, Luke. He passed away at 5 weeks old due to complications from a very serious heart condition (HLHS). Their family has since moved out of state, so a friend and I made a visit to Luke's grave with our kids to celebrate his birthday.

The cemetery was beautiful with statues of Jesus and Mary everywhere! The kids enjoyed walking around on the beautiful sunny and breezy day. I baked cookies and brought some balloons to release. It was really a glorious day to celebrate our Heavenly friend, little saint Luke Thomas!
