Today is my niece's birthday, Devan and Payton. Payton is three and her party is on Sunday. Devan, is now in Heaven, this would be her 25th birthday. Her mom started the balloon tradition the first year she was gone. So every year after Payton's Party we write on balloons and release them to Heaven. We wont be able to stay for the balloons on Sunday so we released ours today.
Devan was such a beautiful girl, with a beautiful soul. She had a huge life about her, and was always the center of the room.
I tried explaining Heaven to Grace, but it is too much for her to understand. She sang Happy Birthday to Devan, and let her balloon go. She yelled fly away balloon, fly to Devan's House.
I wish Grace could have met Devan.
