IN MEMORY OF
JACOB CAMERON LAQUE
born 5:17 a.m., May 11, 1998 and
died Mother's Day, May 10, 1998.
by Amy Badger Laque (his mother who's heart is forever broken):
What a hole I have in my heart for you, my baby son. Had I only known, I would have
cherished you even more than I did. I still dream that I can feel you move...I still
see your face, your hands, your toes...I will never forget that horrendous silence
as you came into our world. You were perfect, 4 lbs., 2 oz., 17" long-and my heart
just refuses to understand why. It seems strange, but I was proud of you that day.
You were born just the way your father and I wanted; very quietly, just the three of
us and the doctor, who cried for you, too. My only comfort is knowing you will never
know hate, selfishness, hurt-all the things that separate our world from yours.
I wish that everyone could understand just what you are to me, and what you will
always be. You are my first baby, my first son. I will not forget you; nor will I
ever let you go. You're in the arms of the angels-may you find some comfort there.
I know you will never read this, never hear the words spoken, but you are so loved,
my precious one...I will see you soon.
