Rest in Peace

On August 26, 2009, Wyatt Andrew & Jackson Christopher were born prematurely to my sister, Kelly & her husband, Greg.  Wyatt passed away on October 9, 2009.  Yesterday, Jack lost his battle and joined his brother Wyatt and sister baby B (who died in utero) in heaven. 

I was reading the guest book on Wyatt & Jack’s Caring Bridge site and saw this poem:

God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place.
And then He looked down
upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you,
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you.
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

I am writing this post in memory of those little angels that I never got to meet.  I had just given Jack a new nickname the other day – Jackaroni.  Kelly thought it was cute because she is also singing the song that says “stuck a feather in his cap & called it macaroni” to her older son, Noah.  My love & prayers are going out to my sister, her husband & big brother Noah (he will be 2 in January). 

Rest in Peace, Jack.
