“My mind spins thinking of all the ifs and questions about who you would have come of age.

“When am I going to wake up from this horrible nightmare?”

“I look at the clock and count the hours of your age. Time is running out but you are not there, you are not getting old, it is not fair.

“No first time, smile or laugh. Why has this happened to us?

“I wish I could have looked at your beautiful face a little longer and held you in my arms forever.”

“I watch my empty stomach where you should still grow up safely and I feel so empty without you there is no kicking or wavering.

“I could see Presley in you, you were so beautiful, perfectly formed.”

“You could never play together and be the best friends in this world and it hurts so much that he would have loved you his little brother so much.”

“I’m grateful we shared 19 weeks together and carried you for as long as I could before it was time for you to earn your wings.

Jess spoke of her unbearable grief

“You will always be our beautiful son and I promise you will always occupy the greatest place in our hearts, my sweet angel.

“I’ll make sure the world knows how special you are. Until we saw my Teddy again. Too special for this world.

“I love you now, forever and ever. Your mom, dad and big brother Presley. ”
