Your birthday is coming up next month... We just had Coys 11th Bday & we miss your smiling face. Right now we are looking for a family to donate your birthday gifts to. I always think it is going to get easier with each passing year, but each year I am corrected. I miss you so much sweety!
Well, we have been busy.... your tree looks AMAZING over at the skatepark, the city planted pansy bulbs last fall & they have bloomed & look great... Since the last time I posted anything Uncle Derek was in a car accident & passed away, I am sure you are keeping him so busy! We Love & Miss you so much sweetheart, there is not a day that goes by that you are not in my thoughts & prayers.... I Love You!!!
When Christy and Michael lived at Ron and Bonnies house for a while, I would come over and hang out with Kade all the time. During those times me and Ruger would play catch all the time in the living room of the house. He would wear me right out. He was always energetic, smiling and having a good time. i am very glad to have this memory of Ruger.
Thank to everyone that came out.... we had so much fun... Cake & Ice cream Balloons at the cemetary & Classic Skating for the party!!!! We are collecting all of "Rugers Gifts" for a family with 3 little boys for christmas & so far it has been very successful!!! We love you all Thank you for the continuous support!!! Happy Birthday sweet angel!!!
I remember once when Ruger brought me a Pepsi while I was mowing the lawn. He was so cute. He wanted to mow the lawn so that I could Drink my Pepsi. Haha... I let him help. We all miss you so much Rugster.

Sunday November 15th We will be having Cake & Ice cream here at our house around 5pm we will then head to the Cemetary to light candles & send off balloons Monday November 16th We will meet everyone at Classic Skating in Orem (Ruger would have loved this place with his scooter) we will meet there around 6:30 it is family night on monday so the cost is $10 per family from 4-9pm Also, we will be donating his bday gifts to families in need again this year so if you would like to bring a gift you can (please don't feel like you have to) you can also drop off gifts to any family member if you would like to donate, we will be collecting gifts starting now until his bday. Thanks everyone for all of the love & support that has been givin.
Sweet! Last week American Fork put a border around Rugers tree & plaque, It looks amazing! I have uploaded photos for everyone to see! We have also made a "CAUSE" for Ruger on facebook! If you are a face book member please join Rugers "cause - Ruger Forever Loved" is to help promote safety awareness for kids....
Ruger always had a bright smile. Sometimes mischevious smile. He could always put a smile on your face even if you were having the worst of worst days. He always seemed to catch your attention somehow. He was also always sneaking into your drink. Mainly Christy's and it was funny because he would start to down it as soon as she wasn't looking. Even if it was cold coffee. You would turn aroung and all of a sudden not know where our drink was. It was great. He made me laugh every time i'd seen him. He always gave me a comfortable feeling. We love and miss you so much Ruger. We are always watching for you when the stars come out at night.
Well we made it through the first year, it was tough but we had so much support, on the year mark we were able to put a plaque under the tree that AF city let us put in down at the skatepark... it was amazing! we had so many people show up... Ruger just keeps amazing us... in this past year Lehi city made him a blanket out of the shirts he wore for sports, we had an amazing turn out on his bday & was able to donate all of the gifts to a 3 year old with cancer, AF city allowed us to plant a tree & plaque for him, in texas where he passed away there was a scout troup that made stuffed animals & took them to the hospital he passed away at & donated them in rugers name, the organization Safe Kids World Wide has asked us to be parent advocates & is sharing Rugers story in Washington DC & the AF city baseball league just had there closing ceremonies & told rugers story & presented us with a shirt & hat from the Pittsburgh Pirates which all of the kids signed.... it has been an amazing journey & he has touched so many lives... we are so thankful we were givin the time we had with our amazing son....
we have an amazing angel among us.... we recieved a call today from the place that is engraving rugers plaque, they told us someone called & paid the remaining balance... but wanted to remain anonymous... I cannot thank you enough whoever you are, our family is so very thankful!
I want to give a HUGE thank you to High Country Granite in Lehi, UT they are going to donate the granite piece for Rugers plaque that will go under his tree at the skate park.... Thank you so much! We love you Joann!!!!
