IN MEMORY OF
NICHOLAS JAMES GALLAMO
born June 4, 1993 and
died June 4, 1993.
by Mommy, Daddy, twin brother Anthony and little brother Michael:
It was October 31st and I was sure the Ob/Gyn was playing a trick (or treat) on me when
she said the ultrasound showed twins! It was so exciting. Never have I seen such kindness
from people, everyone helped us get ready for our twins! Everything went so well and
the nursery was picture perfect. Labor started uneventfully. Suddenly, an emergency
c-section. Identical twins, Anthony 6 lbs, 7 oz. was born first and you, a healthy and
fully grown 5 lbs., born seconds later, but it was too late. A cord accident.
Alas, we never got the chance to look into your eyes, to feel your heartbeat, smell your
sweet breath, touch your soft skin, or hear your cooing and crying. Losing you has been
the single most heartwrenching, tragic, and incomprehensible event in my life. I grieve
for the special relationship that was lost to you and your twin brother and for the
wonder and astonishment I should have experienced raising twins. I will never forget you,
and neither will Daddy or your 2 brothers.
