Oh, my little Luka, you were proof that perfection is real. I will never forget your entrance into this world on May 1, 2022 at 6:42 pm, 8lbs 1oz 23 ½ inches long,(a cooking show was on in the background) and there you were. The very thing I had feared for 9 long months. So real, So beautiful, So perfect. I was so scared, but I knew as soon as I looked at you that we were going to make it through everything, together. We brought you home and started learning, together. Your Memily was a wreck those first few weeks. Your Dad, brother Jeremiah, and Sarah were infatuated with you the moment they saw you. Your Oma & Opa were instantly obsessed. So was your Nana and Pops, your Grandma & Grandpa, your Grammy & Gramps, all your Aunties (So many Aunties), your uncles, your Cousins, and even your Baby Bestie. Everyone was SO excited to meet you and naturally, everyone else fell in love with you too. There wasn’t a person you met that didn’t say how beautiful you were at least 3 times while holding you. You had eyes that had already seen the world through a different lens, a smile that was absolutely contagious every single time, and a laugh that made the entire room giggle in silence just to hear it a little longer. You were never shy to show how you felt. You found your voice and never stopped using it. Everything you did was interesting. Everything you did, down to sleeping, was worth watching for hours on end. Watching you grow was the greatest gift I've received in this lifetime. We spent all day everyday together and it still wasn’t long enough. I don’t know how or why we reached the end of our road so soon, but I do know that we will meet back on that road again one day and that will be the day that my heart and soul are restored. Life without you here on earth will be hard because like they say, “Your wings were ready, but our hearts were not” and we will live every day honoring your memory. If love could’ve saved you, you'd still be here. You brought so many people together in your time here. You mended hearts, relationships, and friendships. You restored Faith in people’s lives. You filled holes people didn’t know were there. You brought happiness and light to everyone’s life and people who didn’t even know you loved you. You my son were the true Legend, our Hero, our Everything. And now you are our Guardian Angel. That’s a big role, a proud role, an honorable role, a role fit for a king, just like you. You will be forever remembered, and we will miss you until the day we meet again. Everything I do will always be for you. Fly High My Sweet Little Pumpkin boy.
Mom & Your Huge Family on Earth waiting to see you again.
