'One week was not enough time to birth you, hold you, love you and have to give you back. You were longed for, you were loved, you were fought for and you will always be remembered, our beautiful son. You brought hope and a promise, you brought family together, and you brought so much excitement and joy to this world. While we lost a million little firsts that we will never get to show you, you got to experience the greatest first of all when you took your last breath here and your first breath in the presence of Christ. As long as our days are on this earth, we will long for the day we see you again.
We love you SO big forever and always,
Mom and Dad'
"I heard a loud voice coming from heaven. It said, “See! God’s home is with men. He will live with them. They will be His people. God Himself will be with them. He will be their God. God will take away all their tears. There will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All the old things have passed away.” Then the One sitting on the throne said, “See! I am making all things new. Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
