Hi, my name is Cindy and this page was made by a dear friend in loving memory of my precious grandsons Ryan and Travis Berlin.
We lost both of them in a car accident on December 9, 2000, as their mother and them were going to the grocery store for us. We had just spent a fun filled day at an annual Christmas party we attended every year since Ryan was two years old.
It was the one most difficult thing I ever had to do in my life.
Ryan was our firstborn grandson and spent more time with us than his brother did but I loved them all the same. It took me well over a year to somehow pick up the pieces of my life and try to live without their physical selves altho I do keep their spiritual lives very much a part of our family.
We remember them on their birthdays and holidays.
Ryan was nine years old and Travis was five years old, now tomorrow on March 22, 2006, Travis will have his fifth Heavenly Birthday Party and would he would be eleven.
I miss them so much and there are so many nights that I wake up just knowing they came to me in a dream. Their pictures are still displayed upon my walls as they were when they passed.
I embrace the day when my task on earth is finished and I can once again be with them.
They will forever be missed by us all but shall never be forgotten by any of us.
Right now what I have a difficult time
with are "the whats: such as what would
they look like, what would their interests be, would they be sports jocks and would Ryan be interested in girls.
I also think of the graduations we shall miss as well as the weddings, births and visits to us when we are old and frail and rely on family to come to us as we age.
I just needed more time with them. I miss their laughter, hugs, and their little tricks they would pull on us.
I miss walking into their rooms at night and watching them lie asleep looking like little cherubs. I miss the going to school plays and musicals with them and seeing them as they perform for an audience.
Really I just miss all of the things that I find so many parents taking for granted never realizing just how short life really can be.
