Topic: J. John Battaglia 1968 - 2008, so young and so much to look forward to
John, I will miss you so much. We had so much more to do together. I promise Joey will know you. I know your time with him was short, just 6 months, but in that time we three spent so much quality time together. I'm so glad we decided on Hospice at home, I loved seeing you and Joey sleeping together. When I speak of you know, even though our Joey is only 7 months old, I call you Dadda to him. He see's your pictures all over the house and when I call your name, he looks at the pictures. I know it's not the same as you actually being here, but it's all we have. I am so glad I got to be with you in the end, while it was hard, it made me feel good too. I know you don't hurt any more. I know you can look in the mirror again and see the image of you at Disney World in August 2007. I know there are no needles, chemo, hospital stays, drainages or pain where you are. I know you are at peace. I am at peace with that too. I feel good about our life together and the time we had. I am sorry that Joey will not have that time. My memory of you will never fade and Joey will know his father! I love you, forever!
