In Loving Memory...


Today, we will attend our first funeral for a baby who has the same condition as Gavin. We have become close to the parents and spent some time with them. It has been great having someone close by to support and to get support from. They are such a great family and Emma was a beautiful baby girl...


My heart is broken right now, I just do not understand. Emma and Gavin were supposed to grow up together and be the best of buds. In their short lives they had so much in common. However, I know that Emma is in heaven now... away from pain, away from suffering. I am sure Jesus rocks her to sleep at night and I am sure she has many heart angels in heaven to play with during the day... Emma, we love you and we will miss you. Gavin sends his kisses and hugs to you. You will forever be in our hearts...

My heart breaks for the parents of Emma, if you would let them know that they are in my prayers, as well as you, Adam and of little Gavin.

Thank you everyone for all your prayers. Faith and Adam: thank you so much for all your support, including letting us borrow your baby scale and coming to the funeral. In Emma's memory, we will always be there for you guys and for other heart families if we can help in any way.
