"We love you, and we'll miss you, although we never met. We only saw you for a second, but that second we'll never forget. Jealous of the angels who get to hear you speak, laugh, run, jump and fall while playing hide-and-seek. Mommy and Daddy pray, please keep watch over us while we wait for that one day when we too can feel your touch."
"Don't you worry, I am fine having fun up here in heaven. All the angels have already taught me one important lesson. You did everything you could, and with them all I concur, so Mommy, keep your head up, Daddy, I know you'll be strong for her. I know it will be hard, but there's one thing you cannot forget. I'll love you and I'll miss you, although we never met."
Arrangements are by Gilden Barton Funeral Home, 1401 Ninth Ave., Altoona.
