Tuesday 25th of January 2011

It was two years ago today that Cristian earned his wings and went to Heaven. Cristian died at 6am on January 25th as I held him in my arms. No matter how much time passes, I still miss him and love him more than ever. He was not only my son but my best friend and he was such an inspiration to me as he fought the cancer so bravely. He never let the cancer get the best of him. Even though he is no longer with me physically, he continues to inspire me to work tirelessly toward curing the disease that took his life. I know all of that the foundation has accomplished so far is making Cristian proud. He watches over us from Heaven as he plays with his trains and is no doubt bossing people around. I look forward to seeing him again one day in the eternal but until then I will love and miss him dearly, and will not stop until I have changed the world in his name and honor. I love you Cris.
