Kozy Kids Korner by Gracelyn
This week's Kozy Kids Korner is from our little Gracelyn. We love her so much and are so grateful that she is willing to share some of her precious feelings and memories of her little brother. (Please be generous with your comments. She is anxious to read the responses. Thanks.)
I love Bennett so much. I wish he didn't have to leave so early. He only lived for 1 1/2 years. He was my best friend. I will never have a better brother than him. He is always
around me when I feel sad or when I am scared. He will never leave my heart.
When Ashton took his cars, Bennett would always squeal. I would say, "Ashton, no! Give that back to Bennett!" He was my pal. He always wanted to sit on a big chair like the big kids. We would use our shower as our Kids Clubhouse and we would all get in together (the brothers and sisters) and hold hands as we walked in a circle singing "Kids Club Members". It was our song. He was part of our club.
When he would cry at night and I would hear him, I would go in his room and sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" or "One Two Three Four Five I Caught a Fish Alive."
In this picture, you will see that Bennett is trying to take off his helmet. I was going to ride my bike but then my dad said "Hey, come get in the trailer with Bennett" and so I did what my dad told me to do cause I make good choices. I want to be like my Dad and Mom when I grow up.
When we were at Disneyland, he went to our grandma's house. We got Bennett a Car shirt. Next time we go for a trip, I will for sure get Bennett a present. I will never leave him. And he will never leave me alone.
He liked animal crackers and he loved yogurt. Sometimes I would share my frozen yogurt with him. He is the best brother I will ever have in my life. He would
jump on the tramp while I holded him. He liked ice cream, going to grandma's house and Aunt Katie who was his girlfriend. Every year passing by I will never stop loving my sweet Bennett Boy.
Bennett's birthday is May 31st. His birthday is only three days apart from mine. At Costco I saw an Elmo book that I want to give him for his 2nd birthday. If he were here right now, I would read the book to him right away.
I will never stop loving him.
