It happened on a cold snowy night 5 years ago today. I held your hand one last time,I kissed your cheek and I brushed your hair back as you told me it was almost time for you to go.
I was so scared and hurt and felt all alone. I knew I had to let you go and I knew then just as I know now that, that was the most hardest thing for me to do was tell you goodbye. You were only 16.... You experienced more pain and suffering than any child your age should.
you did put up o...ne hell of a fight son. You were so brave... Even at the end. You made me promise you that we would continue to help kids and families who are going through the same thing we went through. You made me promise that we would send kids with NF to the very camp you looked forward to each year.
well son it's been a long tough 5 years but we are still helping kids and there families and we are still sending kids to camp NewFriends every summer just like I promised.
The Foundation had come along way in the last 5 years. We are continuing to grow and maybe one day we will be able to reach out to more and more families and one day everyone will know what NF stands for and they will know what Dino Doozer stands for and who he stands behind.
5 years ago today your body was taken away from me but you will always be in my heart . And because of you and your hopes and dreams of helping others you have given me a reason to get up everyday and keep my promise.
I love you and miss you everyday son.
Love always and forever
