Aulden
By Aulden, age 5

Dear Mum,

You're a great Mum. I wish you could still be alive, but you can't. I want to hug you, but I can't see you. And when I go like that (hugging motion), it just... - I miss you (showing his arms not having anything to hug).




Aulden Scott Maciejak Jensen was born on August 15th, 1995. Lisa had been swimming at the YMCA when she went into labor. She called me an we met at the hospital a short way between the Y and the university. Auntie Lynnie took care of getting Nathaniel to bed and arrived 5 minutes after Aulden was born.

Lisa always said that she and Aulden shared a special relationship because she was more relaxed as a mother the second time around. I can still hear her singing Aulden to sleep with her variation of the Conrad Birdie song: "I love you, Aulden. Yes, I do. I love you, Aulden, Yes, I do... Oh, Aulden, I love you."
