IN MEMORY OF
CAROLINE MCKENZIE KLUG
stillborn October 23rd 2007.
by Mommy and Daddy:
Caroline McKenzie Klug was 1 lb and 6 ounces. She was 12 inches long. She looked so much like her daddy. She had big ears and big feet! She had
Nick's mouth too. She would have probably been 8 lbs or more if she had
made it full term. She was really a beautiful little girl and we got to be with her for about two hours. She was dressed in a little crocheted dress and hat given to us by the hospital with the symbolic butterfly on it. The doctors found that Caroline died of a cord accident. Her cord was
twisted many times very close to where it was connected to her body. One nurse who has practiced for 37 years says that she had never seen
anything like this twisting of the cord and said that Caroline must have
been doing spinning gymnastics to cause this. Every one of the nurses were wonderful and so compassionate to us. Our reverend, who married
us last year, baptized Caroline. Although it is so very hard to understand why this happened when Caroline was so perfect, the presence of God was with us every step of the way and I truly accept his decision. We were all given God's strength to cherish and love this special child for the small amount of time she was with us. We know He will help us through the weeks and months to come.
