Three years ago today Ben passed away.  You left this earth far too soon Ben and there isnt a day that goes by that I dont think about you and wish you were still here.  As much as I wish you were here helping in the fight for our sons life, I think its pretty special that Skyler has his daddy for his guardian angel.  The doctors have told me he shouldnt be here today, so you are doing a wonderful job protecting him.  I know you shared something special with Skyler while he was sedated for so long because ever since he woke up after those couple months he tells me how much he loves and misses you almost everyday.  We both do.  Thank you for being a wonderful daddy when you were here and a wonderful daddy from heaven.  It will be a great day when we get to see you again.

Thanks for sharing some of these beautiful pictures. I especially love the one of them all dressed up, where Skyler is a little tiny baby. So, so sweet.

It is hard for my mind to even imagine all you and Skyler have been through over the last couple of years. You and Skyler are so strong. Much love and many prayers to you guys on this day.

It's not a fair hand you've been dealt, Crystal. You are so strong and you've passed your strength along to Skyler.

You are such a strong person, you inspire me to be a stronger person. My daughter has leukemia too but she has not had to lose her dad and have all the side effects and illnesses that Skyler has had. A lesser woman would have crumbled a long time ago. I keep both of you in my prayers every day. Your son is so lucky to have you, and he is the bravest little boy in the word.

I concur. Ben you passed away way too soon! I have so many fond memories of you being my neighbor, - my friend... mutual activities, youth conference, then the toilet papering, sports, and night games. You were one cool dude. I'm so glad that you are there to watch over skyler, and so many people are loving him and praying for him every day.
Crystal, I sure hope that your road gets a lot less bumpy here on out. Thanks for posting your life out here for all of us to read. xoxo
