We truly love our little boy. We are sad only because we could not spend the time we wish we could have had with him. Ryan and I are so grateful for the time we did have. Getting to hold our son while he passed so he wouldn’t have to leave this world alone and cold was the hardest but the least we could do for him. I long for the day I see him again and hear his sweet laugh and hold his hand, but until then we will continue to love his sister just as much as we cherished him. I wish you could have stayed with us Emmett but God decided you were too perfect for us, we are so lucky to be your mom and dad. Words can’t express how much we miss you.
