IN MEMORY OF
CASEY LEE LAVENDER
miscarried September 8, 1999.
by your loving mother and father:
Casey Lee, I had waited so long for this pregnancy. From the moment I knew, I
couldn't stop talking about you. I searched every name book for the perfect match.
I told every friend I had ever known. I was so happy, my prayers had been answered.
My miracle was happening. It had only been 7 weeks since I first found out, but you
were all that I could think about. My every waking moment I anticipated your arrival
with so much joy. I imagined how my life would change. I dreamed of how you would
look, sound, or feel in my arms. Never had I thought that MY bundle of joy could be
taken from me so quickly. I didn't know any of the things that questioned me so.
Like the color of your eyes,your smell, your smile, your cry, or even if you were
a boy or girl. All I knew was that my Casey was gone. Gone home to be with our father
up above. I knew I could love you more than words can say, but I also knew that I
would see you one day. Until then Casey, God will watch over you, while you watch
over me. Love, Your Mommy
PS: Your daddy loves you too, but it is too hard for him to say.
