This is one of my favorite quotes regarding the death of infants. It has brought me a lot of comfort and I love that it came from a Prophet of God, Joseph Smith. I was very excited to see it in "The Groves" in Nauvoo when I was there visiting. This quote was given in this actual area where I took the picture. What an inspired and comforting place!

Little One

While going through some things today I found this poem that my mom had written for Parker when he died. I think it's beautiful. Thanks, Mom!

Little one so sweet and dear
How we've longed to have you here
To hold, to hug, to make our life bliss
Though now we must leave you with one last kiss
And try to somehow understand
That keeping you here was not in the plan
For Heavenly Father knew better than we
He kept you near him to wait peacefully
Until the day comes when we together will be
Forever and ever throughout all eternity.

-Grandma Maycock
