Happy Birthday, Son... I Miss You, Tommy

Happy Birthday, Son... I Miss You, Tommy

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

November 20, 1969... Thursday morning at 11:28 am a little baby was born.  He weighed 8 lbs. 4 1/2 oz.  He was 21 inches long.

This little baby had a lot of blonde hair.  He was perfect, beautiful.  Tommy was born... my son, my only child was born.

May 29, 2010.... on a Saturday evening at Myrtle Beach, he collapsed on the beach, died.  He was playing with his little three year old son for the first, and last time.

November 20, 2012... Tommy would have been 43 years old today had he lived.
I miss you, Son.  Your mama loves you.  I miss you, Tommy.


  1. Happy Birthday to Tommy!! I know you miss Tommy. I do wish he was here so the two of you could celebrate his birthday together. Love, Ms. Nancy

  2. HI Gloria....I'm so sorry about the loss of your son. Words just can't express how incredibly sad I am for you. I was just stopping in to see you. I had you as a visitor at my blog and I am so grateful you stopped in.

    I love your dogs-I have a fur baby that's so close to my heart. He is a red golden retriever named Xander. He's a love.

    I'll stop by to see what you are up to from time to time. Take care and be are that already-what can I say?
