A special message to our baby girl Journey from mom and dad,

You were taken on angel’s wings as you sweetly and quietly slept and returned to heaven before we knew that you even left. Our hearts are heavy and sorrowed that our time with you was so brief. For every second that you were here filled our hearts with joy. Though we weren’t blessed to see you grow up. We were blessed to see your beautiful face and to hold you lovingly in our arms. Your tiny prints have touched our hearts and there you will live forever, never to be forgotten. We love you.

Family would like to thank Newport Hospital and staff for the excellent service.

Burial service will be private
