That is beautiful Michelle! Thanks for sharing those precious and personal pictures with us. I'm sure you have a little guardian angel watching over your family.

Michelle, this is such a beautiful tribute to Benjamin... it has left me speechless. My heart is so deeply touched at having this small glimpse of your precious angel son. I'm praying (extra) for you today.

Oh, Michelle! You are such an amazing mother. I can imagine how much courage it took for you to share those beautiful, and very personal, pictures with all of us. It was wonderful to see them again! I had to watch the slideshow 3 times (and cry, of course)! Thank you so much for taking the time to make that and to share it. I've thought of you a lot today and prayed for you particularly this weekend. I hope you've had a great day celebrating Benjamin. And celebrating all of your beautiful family. You are so blessed!

I miss you!

What a beautiful presentation. I was moved to tears throughout the whole thing. Then I noticed the sniffles from behind me and I saw that Ethan(5) was watching over my shoulder and weeping as well.
Thank you for being everything my brother and nephews deserve. I have no question that your little angel Benjamin will have his family for eternity.

Just watched your video tribute to Benjamin. What a good job you did. It was a real tear jerker. I loved the way his whole life is depicted and the beautiful reminder of his life now in heaven with Heavenly Father. Won't it be wonderful for you and Chris to be able to raise him later. You are a special family and we love you.

I was thinking of you- I hope you don't mind...I found a new site:
I requested they write Benjamin's name in the sand and take a picture for you.

You can view it at the link above. Just wishing you gentle days-

Thank you for sharing your beautiful son Benjamin with us. My son Gabriel was stillborn at 21 weeks and I know how hard anniversary dates are. ((hugs))

We was there to share this special time with you but wanted to comment on how wonderful your video presentation is. How lucky we are to have Benjamin in our family! Thank you for publicly sharing your personal dealings with life. We love you and ALL the Baker boys, including DC.

I haven't looked at your blog for a long time and felt I needed some uplifting. Wow, your blog hit the heart. You are such an amazing, courageous, loving mom! You have given me more hope through words, music and video. Thanks for sharing your heart and memories and the tender mercies that Heavenly Father have given you. Benjamin truly is lucky to have you! I hope I will be blessed enough to meet him someday. Have a bright day. Love, Jennifer M.
