  • I love that we sang primary songs to him the day he died.

I loved this sweet boy with all of my heart. he was my whole world and i would have done anything for him. i was so so so proud to have him in my life and i don't know what i would do without being a part of my life. i feel like the luckiest person alive to have been such a big part of his life. I am so blessed that i was able to see him every Sunday night. I am so blessed that i got to see him all the time. I feel like the luckiest person alive that i got to spend so much time with that little sweet heart. He will forever be in my heart. I love my sweet Jonah Ramsey Hall. I know now what love is because i had so much of it for that sweet little boy.
