    Dear Kareema, Paul and Chloe, Cynthia, and family – Michael was the heart of our very special group of babies. His smile, his charming glances, his laugh all had us under his spell from the earliest of days. He will be so, so missed. May his memory be a blessing and may you find strength in the love we all had for him.

    Dear Kareema, I have such fond memories of baby Michael all those years ago – it was as if he was my first grandchild! Such a beautiful child! I see from his picture that he grew up to be a handsome young man. I cannot imagine the grief that you and your family are feeling right now. All I can say is that I wish you peace of mind and to find solace in the people that surround you at this time. Be well and take care, my dear girl. There are no words that can make this loss feel better. Love, Barbara
