Two Years

On Friday it will be two years since the coolest teen I've ever met
left us.
We still talk about him almost every day.
Miss him every day.
My 12 year old, Smith, wears some of his clothes.
His picture is on my I see it all of the time.

It is almost impossible to believe, still, that he isn't here.
Maybe it is because we have kept him so close. 

Colton, We miss you terribly, and love you still. 

 He loved Flogging Molly; he's wearing their shirt in that pic.
 So, Here's to you Coley Bowl!

Lyrics to If I Ever Leave This World Alive
by Flogging Molly

If I ever leave this world alive

I'll thank for all the things you did in my life

If I ever leave this world alive

I'll come back down and sit beside your

feet tonight

Wherever I am you'll always be

More than just a memory

If I ever leave this world alive

If I ever leave this world alive

I'll take on all the sadness

That I left behind

If I ever leave this world alive

The madness that you feel will soon subside

So in a word don't shed a tear

I'll be here when it all gets weird

If I ever leave this world alive

So when in doubt just call my name

Just before you go insane

If I ever leave this world

Hey I may never leave this world

But if I ever leave this world alive

She says I'm okay; I'm alright,

Though you have gone from my life

You said that it would,

Now everything should be all right

Love you!  Aunt Lola


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my boyfriend years ago and I often sing that song to remember him. Flogging Molly has a way of voicing beautiful thoughts.

  2. What a beautiful song - so perfect for such a beautiful young man!

    Enjoy and treasure those beautiful memories {{{hugs}}}

  3. My heart was touched by that song and your sweet memories without even knowing him. May God bless you and your family. Thank you for reminding me to hold my boys even closer.
    Blessings ~
