Kisses for Calvin

Calvin Phoenix ultrasoundOur friends and family did not get the chance to meet Calvin, but we know that he is loved and remembered. I created this space for all of us, and especially for friends and family, as a place to write messages to our sweet boy. Please feel free to send Calvin a hug and a kiss.

    i love you very very much.

  11. Happy Birthday! Hoping your mommy and daddy can find peace within knowing you are safe in heaven and having fun playing with all the other babes.

  12. Hi Calvin,
    We know you are especially with your mommy and daddy today. Please leave them some nice clues that your hanging around ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Wishing you a Happy 2nd Birthday – you have touched so many people's hearts, especially your parents'. Thinking of you and your family on your special day. Big hugs to Crystal and Louie and angel hugs to Calvin and Rainbow.

  14. Sending love & hugs to Heaven, sweet Calvin. Happy 2nd birthday in Heaven, baby. I mailed a card to you today – miss you till we meet in Glory. xoxoxoxo

  15. Hi Love… Thank you for the support the past few days right before your birthday. I know it's you sending familiar faces to run into me wherever I go lately, especially at this stressful time in life. It's not by accident or luck we ran into auntie yoly & ate claire today, the day before your birthday & that she encouraged us to come to your party still sick or not. At our lowest times the last thing to do is be alone, being with family is love & love heals pain. Thank you for that<3

    I can't believe we're already at your 2nd birthday. How jealous I am that Mama has gotten to spend the last 2 years with you when I close my eyes & try to imagine your face, your laugh, your smile & you playing with your cousins.

    Miss you always always!

  16. every day that passes since your passing know that you were held in the deepest corners of our hearts. We are mixed with pain and joy in that we miss your presence, but we can't begin to imagine the "normal" world in which you live. Such wonder's you must see, and the depths of understanding you have surpasses the wisest of us. Thank you beautiful nephew though for your touching our lives. You were a blessing to us, no matter how short that blessing, and short that moment, your impact on us is never short-lived. In the meantime, listen to all 3 of your lolas, and the rest of your heavenly relatives. Be the good baby I know you are and make sure you help Jesus set the grand banquet table, because we're on our way to you, we just have to do a few more things first. We love you Calvy.

    P.S Thank you for the prayers, because your family down here is showered with blessings everyday…. I'm almost positive your lolas are instructing you to pray for us daily ๐Ÿ™‚

    love you,

    unky micah

  45. hi cal, happy birthday! Please tell God to give the warriors a break this offseason, thanks!

    Happy Birthday again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. — for someone I have never met, a little wee person whose mother and father I did know, I feel an intense compassion and love. You were born into a perfect family — two people who had been committed to each other for a long time, who were ready for you when you came to them. A poet who had children of his own who went home before he was ready for them to wrote the following, which may capture some of what your parent's feel on your first birthday:

    Surprised by joy -impatient as the wind
    I turned to share the transport – Oh! with whom
    But Thee, deep buried in the silent tomb,
    That spot which no vicissitude can find?
    Love, faithful love, recalled thee to my mind –
    But how could I forget thee? Through what power,
    Even for the least division of an hour,
    Have I been so beguiled as to be blind
    To my most grievous loss? – That thought's return
    Was the worst pang that sorrow ever bore
    Save one, one only, when I stood forlorn,
    Knowing my heart's best treasure was no more;
    That neither present time, nor years unborn,
    Could to my sight that heavenly face restore.

    He also wrote the following, however, which is more about you, a poem about babies and their growing into childhood. Here is part of it:

    Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
    The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, 60
    Hath had elsewhere its setting,
    And cometh from afar:
    Not in entire forgetfulness,
    And not in utter nakedness,
    But trailing clouds of glory do we come 65
    From God, who is our home:
    Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
    Shades of the prison-house begin to close
    Upon the growing Boy,
    But he beholds the light, and whence it flows, 70
    He sees it in his joy;
    The Youth, who daily farther from the east
    Must travel, still is Nature's priest,
    And by the vision splendid
    Is on his way attended; 75
    At length the Man perceives it die away,
    And fade into the light of common day.

    You, this poet would say, left before you could be disappointed. But when you left, you also left parents who grieved for you and would have seen you through childhood in the best of ways.

  47. Feeling so sorry for your mommy as I'm sure she misses you terribly, but so glad to know that you are in Heaven and know nothing but pure joy. God blessed your precious little life.

  48. Happy 1st birthday! We wish so much that you were here with us to celebrate together. Hopefully, the celebration is even better in heaven. You mean the world to your parents and we feel honored to have met them. Stay close to their hearts always.

  49. I never knew how much you could love someone you've never met until YOU came along. I love you forever & think of you everyday! I'll never forget you…. how can I when your tattooed on me, that means just like Mama, you're with me everyday for the rest of my life! ๐Ÿ™‚


  50. We wish you were here with us, and that we got to meet you in person. Your parents are wonderful people, and we know that they miss you more than you can imagine. Sending you love and kisses-

  51. Such a sweet little boy, I am sure you will be watching from heaven enjoying EVERY moment of your party!!! Have a wonderful time and continue to watch over your mom and dad!

  53. Happy birthday Calvin Phoenix…. You are terribly missed by all of us. God bless you and your wonderful family…

  54. Happy Birthday Calvin! You don't know me, but I know you mother. You have made her increadibly stong. Continue to bless all that love you with your presence and your warmth.

  55. Happy 1st Birthday Calvin!! Wish you could be here to celebrate but I'm sure the celebration in Heaven is better than we can imagine! Much love to you!

  56. May you look down on your family tomorrow and bless them – they will always hold you in their hearts, since they cannot hold you in their hands. Happy First Birthday, little man. And peace to your parents and family.

  57. For having spent such a short time here, you have impacted a lot of people! You are missed and loved very much. I hope to meet you someday in the spirit world. Happy 1st birthday –

  58. It would have been nice to have met you… but I'm glad your mommy and daddy at least got to hold you before you left ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Birthday!

  59. Happy day early birthday god-son of mine! yup! I specifically remember making your dad promise to make me a ninang to his first baby at your parents wedding dance thing, As if it were almost a threat..teehee. and I proudy say that you are their first baby therefore I'm yours! ๐Ÿ™‚ so let me spoil you will love and prayers on this special day. I think you're beautiful, true beauty. Because only someone really special can make others feel beautiful even when they aren't physically here. I love you baby boy. Keep smiling up there in the fathers arms. Muah!!!!!

  60. i love you & cannot wait to hold my first nephew someday. i know happiness is unlimited there in heaven but save a spot in that heart of yours for me okay? and watch over your mommy & daddy…fill their heart with your presence each time they miss you. each time we miss you ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. whenever I walk on the tiny garden Grandpa and I build for you I feel your presence.When I put your picture the very first time I entered my new office in Kaiser, I felt you.Our Little Angel, the Blessed One, you never left us in spirit and not a day passes by, without me thinking of you.- Grandma Yol.

  62. I wish that you were here, and that your wonderful parents could hold you and kiss you in person… I know you know how much they love you and how much you have profoundly deepened their existence. I'm so happy to know your Mommy and Daddy, but I wish I could've known you too… Lots and lots of love to you…

  63. I have no idea what it must be like for you in Heaven. I have no doubt there is no sorrow and pure joy. Down here though there is sadness in your absence. You are missed, Calvin and your mommy loves you beyond words. On this day just know you are being held in our thoughts and hearts. Give my baby girl a big hug for me until I can get there.

  64. I wish you were here with us on your 1st birthday, but can only hope that you are with Oliver, Isabella, Isaac, Milo, Alexandra, and Rainbow Baby. Know that you are very loved and that your Mommy and Daddy are beautiful people who love you very much.
    Happy Birthday. Love, Jeff

  65. tears come to my eyes as i write this for you.
    i wish that we could have met you. but please know how (incredibly) much your mommy and daddy love you. they keep you alive and with us everyday.
    we remember you and honor you on your first birthday.
    with lots of love and hugs & kisses.
    love, sara.

  66. you don't know me, but you might know my daughter, lily, who died the day she was born. in my heart i see a field of blue flowers where you both run and laugh and sing. in that place you can touch the sky, and water, and breath–the crouch of dreams in your fingers. please tell lily she gave me life. that all my words carry her spirit on their small backs. with love from an other mother.

  67. You are not something to be healed. Something to be dealt with or forgotten. You are MY son and I proudly carry the grief of losing you.

    Happy First Birthday Tomorrow. I love you so so much.
