With great sorrow

we announce the birth and death of our son,

DSC_7825Simon Godfrey

born still at 6:14 pm on Saturday, April 6th, 2013

at 26.5 weeks of pregnancy,

weighing 1 lb, 12.5 oz;

measuring 14 inches long.

.

We buried him on Thursday, April 11th

after the funeral which was the last gift we could give him,

and the only event we were ever allowed to plan for him.

.

I have wrestled for the words to put to this,

to honor our son,

to hold our sorrow.

There are no words sufficient.

So I start where I am,

here.

Tomorrow, some tomorrow, I will write more.

Today, as all the days past, and all the many years to come,

I weep for my son.
