Twenty-four years ago today the world became a little brighter, a little happier, a little better because a beautiful little boy came into the world. My sweet son, Robert, has filled our lives with joy, with music, with laughter, with virtue, with honor. The relationship between a mother and son is an undeniably special thing. I love you, my dear. Thank you for the honor of being your mother. I hope I haven't impeded your progress too much. I have tried to merely get out of the way as you have reached for the stars. Thanks for the stardust you have managed to scatter around.
I have been so blessed to have you in my life, in my family, and in my heart. I miss you today.
