IN MEMORY OF
DANIEL ADAM GLEDSON
born August 15, 1998 and
died August 12, 1998.
by Charlotte, John, Sam and Billy Gledson:
Daniel looked so peaceful when he was born, though he was simply sleeping.
He had Johnni's nose, and had hair just like our firstborn, Sam. When the midwifes
took him back, it was then, I felt the pain, felt the overwhelming shock that he had
actually died and that I wouldn't be holding him again. I will always remember his smell,
his tiny fingers and feet, so perfect in everyway. I will always remember his movement
inside me, life inside me. If only his life lasted longer so I could have seen his eyes
open and hear his cry.... I feel so vacant now, though I know he is above looking down
on us, our angel. But, that doesn't take away the ache of longing a mother needs when
she is crying out for her son. My arms remain empty, but my heart knows he's within me.
I love you Daniel, we all miss you. watch us, guide us, and may God keep you safe until
I can hold you myself in heaven above. xx
