8,177 days we were blessed by your presence. 584 days we’ve had to endure your absence. When you entered our lives 24 years ago we knew our world had changed forever! We were now outnumbered! That was an understatement!
Your due date was August 14th but you didn’t want to wait and I have to say I was relieved! We were so ready to meet you! Avery and Connor were too! On August 4th your Dad was working a 24 hr. Shift at the fire Dept. He called around dinner time to check on us, as he always did. I mentioned I was having contractions and I would let him know if it was time to call the doctor. Not long after hanging up I decided to call. The doctor said to go to the hospital. Since you were my 3rd child she advised me not to wait. I called Your Dad back to tell him and he nervously said I will be right there! A few minutes go by and your Dad calls back. As he was rushing to get his things and head home he realized he had ridden his bicycle into work that day. He had to get the chief on duty to drive him home. (You always laughed when we joked about him doubling me on his bike to deliver you! Lol) We arrived at the hospital around 8:30 p.m. and you made your entrance at 11:26 p.m. You weighed 7 lbs. and 6 oz. and were 21 inches long. You were a combination of Avery and Connor but already with your own personality. You completed our family and brought us so much joy. We watched you grow into a loving, kind, compassionate, faithful, active and determined young man. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think of you and all our precious memories with you and wonder what you would be doing if you were here.
Pierce, you made us so proud and we miss you beyond words everyday. We love you and miss you today, your 24th Birthday 😔😢💜. Happy Heavenly Birthday our precious boy!
