my favorate picture of drew ever

on 4-23-10 i put him to bed like any other night i gave him a bath put him in his shirt that said "daddy knows alot but grandpaw knows everything" and his nijia turtle underwear cuz that was the only way to keep his diaper on he loved to air it out i gave him a hug and kiss i yelled for his daddy to come in from playing basketball i went ahead and layed him down which was my biggest regret when daddy got in he was already asleep we went to bed late that night i woke up to my daughter telling me that Andrew had a string around his neck and he was dead i thought she was being the drama queen she was and got outta bed slowly started walking back to his room i seen Keith sitting on his bed stairing at Andrews bed rocking with a look on his face i will never forget.. at that point i started to run when i got there he was hanging in the corner of his bed for the string of the blinds i ran to his bed and unwraped the cord from his cold stiff body he was blue from head to toe all i could do was yell for his daddy i started shaking him asking him to please wake up i tried to move his arms down from his neck they wouldnt move i put him back in his bed and ran outta the room it was really the saddest day in our family all i could do is sit in the rain and tell myself this is a dream im going to wake up but i didnt.... and all i can do now is look at him in pictures and in videos.... I miss you so much baby boy i wish i could bring you back i would give my life for yours you never even had a chance to live your life 4-24-10 is day that will never leave my head or my husbands or my children we all wish you were still here...... WE LOVE YOU ANDREW KYLE ATKERSON.... if this has taught anyone anything i want it to be to keep your family close you never know when its your last day i never thought that when i put Andrew to bed it would be the last time i said goodnight i never thought not letting daddy give him hugs and kisses would be so bad...

"Who You'd Be Today"

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
I feel you everywhere I go.
I see your smile, I see your face,
I hear you laughin' in the rain.
I still can't believe you're gone.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell that I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who'd you be today?

Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue,
I feel like I can talk to you,
An' I know it might sound crazy.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell that I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Today, today, today.
Today, today, today.

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
The only thing that gives me hope,
Is I know I'll see you again some day.

Some day, some day, some day.
