IN MEMORY OF
MAKAYLA ZAYNE HOGUE
born February 17, 1996 and
died February 18, 1996.
Oh Makayla, grandma misses you so much. I was elated when I knew you were on the way.
I was so excited to go with Mommy for her ultrasound at 32 weeks only to find out
there was no amnio fluid and that you would be born in just a few days. We knew it
was still a little early but were convinced you would be OK. I knew immediately
when you were born that you were in trouble. All those tubes and machines.
It was a very hard decision the following evening for your daddy when he had to
decide to have the respirator shut off. When your heart continued to beat, I finally
had to chance to hold you and I told you, "It's OK Makayla, you can go." Oh, how I
wanted you to stay, but I knew deep in my heart that was not going to happen and
you sprouted your wings and became an angel. I miss you as much today as I did the
evening you passed away. You are my little angel and I will love you forever.
