I was fortunate to come across a fundraiser to raise money for SIDS research. As you know, we are college basketball fans and your daddy and I also went to Duke for grad school. Your daddy and you watched the NCAA tournament last year together. Your daddy loved to watch games with you sitting on his lap. You were such a cuddle bug!
A current Duke student created Brackets 4 Life to raise money for SIDS research by creating a march maddness bracket. This Duke student lost his 5 month old brother 17 years ago. I have connected with his mother and she has given me hope that one day Owen, I will be able to remember your sweet smile and smile myself. Hopefully her son Christopher and you are bonding in Heaven!
Anyone interested in helping out a cause near and dear to our hearts and our sweet Owen, please participate...
For the best experience they suggest using Safari, Firefox, or Chrome.
Maybe one day we will find out why SIDS happens and prevent any other family from experiencing the pain we go through every day.
Miss you more than I could ever express Owen but things like this show me that good can come out of an unthinkable situation.
Your one and only Mom
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.
