Colleen, our hearts are broken for your loss. God couldn't have chosen a better mom for DJ and his smile is a reflection of his deep love for you and how happy you made him! We pray that the happy moments you remember will help ease this tremendous pain over time but I have no doubt you will still feel his presence until you see him again someday.
