IN MEMORY OF
EMMA NICOLE BAKKEN
born 5-5-01 and
by Mom, Dad, and twin brother Mitchell:
Emma was born at 30 weeks weighing about 12 ounces. Her brother Mitchell was 3 pounds, 4 ounces. We attempted to save her life by taking her out as she was suffering from IUGR. We are so thankful to have gotten to hold and talk and sing to Emma before she died of pneumonia 14 days later. I never dreamed I'd be a Mom telling such a story of my daughter's short life and sudden death. The sadness returns every time I see twins, or hear of someone losing a child. We know she is safe in God's hands now, with no tubes or lines, and is peacefully playing with all the other preemies who were taken too soon.
