IN MEMORY OF
HUGH MONROE DILLON
born March 4, 1999 and
died May 22, 2000.
I miss you so much baby boy. You made my life so wonderful.
I wish for you to come back to us everyday. We have all of your pictures
in your room and we go and sit in there to be with you. I miss hearing
you say “Da!“ and “Ball“ and “Ma“. I know you are a little Saint in
heaven now and we will be together again.
We lost Reno due to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever--we took him into
Doctors over and over--a total of 4 Doctors saw him and missed his
diagnosis--and they were told that he had been bit by a tick a week
before. Please if you read this remind any and all parents to watch
their children for ticks, if they find one remove it with tweezers, put
alcohol on the spot and note when they found the tick and preserve the
tick in alcohol. We found out too late--our Doctor dismissed our
concerns. Any time there is a bite and fever get good medical attention!
Our hearts are broken and our child is dead and we don't ever want this
to happen to anyone else.
The day before Reno died his baby sister Dottie was born. She will never
know her big brother. He was a kind, loving child. He loved his Daddy
and imitated him all the time. He gave me the best kisses and I was so
proud of him.
