Happy Birthday Angelbaby

I am thinking of angelbaby. Her given name is Ani Lucille Tribbett. Who knows - maybe there's a little boy in heaven going "Why did I end up with a girl name?" I don't know - is there even gender in heaven? I guess to keep things simple and concrete, we chose a gender. Female made sense since anatomically all babies are essentially female when they start out in the womb. She would be around a year old right now. I didn't know her, so I guess I can't really say that I miss her personally. But I miss the idea of her and the fact that I didn't get a chance to get to know her. I know that someday I'll get to see this angelbaby. But I really don't know how such things work in heaven. Will she know me and know that I thought about her a lot? Or perhaps she has some window into my life from her place in heaven. Perhaps she'll feel that I don't think of her enough?

I am sad for the sibling that Boo never got a chance to know. Someday he'll know about her, but I would've loved to see him with her.

Happy Birthday Ani. You are loved and never forgotten.

Estimated Due Date - 9/5/2009


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. I have the same thoughts. Some days are easier than others, but I always think of the two we've lost.



  2. Ani- your mom is one of the most beautiful spirits I know. Your dad is a cool cat. And your brother is so adorable, its almost illegal. (But I know you know all this this because you are with them every single day.) Happy Birthday!

  3. Ah Crystal, my love to you and Ani.
