born 5:17 a.m., May 11, 1998 and died Mother's Day, May 10, 1998.
Remembered 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.
