Our Little Warrior Owen

This blog is dedicated to our little sunshine angel Owen. We named him Owen because it means little warrior and we knew he would have to be with two older brothers. He was our little sunshine and his heart stopped beating unexpectedly on his 5 month birthday. We are devastated by the loss of our little guy. Hopefully, this blog will give readers a sense of what a beautiful spirit he was, how he completed our family and will help to keep his memory alive. We hope this gives light into our grieving process and can help other families that suffer a similar tragic loss.

Memorial mass for all children lost too soon

Dear Owen,

Just wanted to say thank you for praying for us. The mass at St. Ignatius tonight reminded us that you are a saint and you are now in God's hands and praying for us.

It also reminded us to cherish the time we had with you and know that we will meet you again one day when our journey here is done. We met some nice families tonight who lost children also. Everyone commented on how you were the cutest baby! Liam and Connor placed your photos near a burning yellow candle at the alter because yellow and suns remind them of you.

They recreated the scene here at home with the candles we received at mass, the rose we were handed and your photos. We all miss you and love you to the moon and back.


Your one and only Mom
