A Letter to Justin Robert Bonwit

by Justin's Dad

Dear Justin,

On November 6 1995 you came in to this world and made our small family complete. I can remember your mommy's face when she got to hold you for the first time. How happy and proud I felt when I first saw you. Your sister's face - she was so happy to see you. This is a special time I will never forget.

On March 25 1996 for some reason you were taken away from us. The doctor told us SIDS had stolen you from the people who love you the most. It's not fair you were cheated out of a life filled with love. We were cheated out of sharing all the fun and joy of seeing you grow up and become a man.

In the short time you spent with us, you touched so many people. Your smiles and sounds made people around you remember how precious life can be. Most of all you touched my life in a special way . I only have my memories left of our short time we had together but I will never let them go. I miss holding you in the middle of the night when you woke up; we would sit and watch TV and I knew if I looked down you would be smiling at me. I also miss taking you with me for breakfast. You were my buddy and best friend and I could not wait till you were old enough to go fishing and do the things dads are suppose to do with their sons. Its not fair you and I will not have this chance. If there was anything I could have done to stop what happened to us, I would have in a heart beat.

Please know that I love you and will never forget you . I know in my heart that there was nothing I could have done to stop what happen and there is nothing I can do to bring you back to us. All I can do is try to help Mommy ,Amber and other people who have to go through this foul thing called SIDS. I know that my best friend Bobby is looking after you; if I know him he is treating you like his own son and Mommy's family will be there to help. Some day I will see you again and we'll have lots to talk about and maybe by then someone can tell me why this happened. Till that day comes please watch over all of us still here and take care of everybody there. Love forever and in my heart and memories your daddy. I miss you.
