He will get you through it.

Happy Birthday James

James Yap, September 11, 1965- January 2005
James, your light shines on through our three children. 
They are my greatest treasure. 
Thank you so much for everything!

Had James been alive, he would have turned 45 today. We may have moved on but we have not forgotten. He will always be in our hearts. And we will forever be grateful for all the memories he left behind.

It is so hard to lose someone you love so young. His light shines on through the eyes of your children. You are so right when you say they are your greatest treasure. Keep shining, Bing. You are doing great. He must be so proud of you.

sherry, i read your touching comment in my "we were not ready to say goodbye" post. thanks so much for taking the time to read james' story.

acceptance was not easy, sherry. he would have turned 40 that year we lost him. we were planning a big thanksgiving party, his very first. it didn't happen. we didn't get the chance.

he would have been proud of the kids. 5 years have changed them a lot. yes, his light shines on through their eyes.

heartspell, thanks for joining us here in remembering james. that means a lot to me. again, thank you so much.

thom, we offered a catholic mass in his memory last friday and celebrated LIFE itself yesterday, september 11. we have so much to be thankful for. our painful loss may have changed our lives forever but we have no complaints. i am so glad none of these kids grew up with bitterness or hatred in their hearts. thanks for stopping by and for your birthday message. much appreciated, my friend!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
