Tertia - you and you family are in my thoughts today - especially sweet Ben.


I'm always surprised that another year has gone by. I just want you to know that Ben is still very alive in memory for many of us who visit here daily.

I will next month grieve the fourth birthday of my triplet babies that I lost at 25w1d. Just as you write of Ben, the time we spent will forever remain a part of my very being.

Happy birthday precious Ben.

Happy Birthday, Ben. Tertia, I think of you and Ben (and Luke) often as I was pg w/ my twin boys at the time you delivered. I remember your Ben at times when I look at my boys (who will be 4 in Feb) and I think of how immeasurably lucky I am. You baby boy will not be forgotten.

So sad for you. Lots of love.

Happy birthday sweet Ben. I wish you were hear to spend it with your darling mama, daddy, and brother and sister.

Thinking of you, Marko, Ben and Luke today. It is amazing how much Ben looks like Adam -- your children are all beautiful.

I think of your little Ben often, and remembered today as his birthday. You are a wonderful mother to all of your children, the precious ones who are still with you and the sweet ones who could only stay a little while. Love to you and Marko both today.

Happy Birthday, Ben! You sure have left some beautiful footprints on this planet. :-)

Happy Birthday Ben!


I have thought of you, Marko & Ben so much over the past week. I have no words but know that I send love!

Happy Birthday to precious Ben and Luke!
Thinking of you today - and understanding how raw it STILL feels on anniversaries!!
"Know that your angels look down from heaven above, and with each ray of sunshine, they send you all their love!"
(Good thing you live in sunny SA and not the UK, or else you would be wondering where the love was ......v grey and miserable here at the mo.... :) )
Love Kirsty & co. in the (very grey) UK

Happy birthday Ben

Loving memories of one so dear,
Treasured still with a love sincere,
In your hearts he is living yet,
You loved him too dearly to forget.

The candles are lit,
but no song will be sung.
No laughter, no roars, of my little one
who would have been four.

If you only knew the plans
that would be made by your dad and me
The cake to be baked...
The presents wrapped...
and all the funny party hats.

The pictures taken by your dad,
or course,
As loving friends fill the house.

All of this is not meant to be,
since you were taken away from me.
No birthday cake...
No presents unwrapped...
No pictures of you in your party hat.

But the candles are lit,
Never go out.
For they burn forever in my heart.

Today, I will hold you in my heart.

Happy birthday, Ben. And hugs to Mama.

*tears* How I wish Ben was still in your arms, Tertia. How I wish we could be enjoying his birthday celebration today, complete with a gaggle of 4-yr-olds.

Thank you (as always) for sharing your intensely personal story, Tertia. You have made the world a better place.

Happy birthday, dear Ben! I hope you are watching from Heaven, and can feel how much your family - and each of us! - loves you.

Woah...it's my birthday today and I just came across your page.
I do understand how it is to lose a child as a close friend of mine has.
It was an unplanned pregnancy and as time went along, she was happy to have this baby.
One day she woke up and realised she miscarried while going about her daily routine.

You're a strong woman Tertia and I do admire your courage and your bravery in the face of adversity each time. You really are an inspiration to me.

Happy 4th birthday Ben...thoughts to you today

Happy Birthday darling Ben and special hugs to Mommy.

Thinking of you and your precious Ben.

Long time lurker letting you know that I'm thinking of Ben, and your entire family today. Please know that after my loss last year, your archives were the first I hit to remind myself how on earth people can live through such tragedy. You're an inspiration, and Ben is lucky to have a mum like you. Best.

Take care of yourself today Tetria.

Happy Birthday, Ben.

Don't really know what to say. Hugs to all of you...

I remember Tertia, always will.

Happy Birthday, sweet little Ben

I remember his birth 4 years ago. Happy Birthday to dearly loved Ben. Big hugs to his mommy and family.

Thinking of Ben and Luke today. Sometimes it is harder as we get farther along seeing our living children and wondering what we had missed with our angels.

God Bless you and your family, Tertia.

Happy birthday, Ben. Much love you your beautiful family, Tertia.

Sending you hugs and lifting up a prayer for you on this difficult anniversary. Ben will never be forgotten.

Thinking of all of you.


{{{{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}}}} to you.

I did not realize that Ben and I share a birthday. What an honor.

And what an amazing woman you are to send me a sweet b-day message on the day, when here it takes me until days later to even drop by to say how sorry I am that Ben died. I am sorry, so sorry.


Very belated here, but thinking of you and all your children during this momentous week.

Wishing you all the best ......

Happy Birthday, Ben. Your sweet face brings tears to my eyes. You are dearly missed.
