Gary Gene Norfleet, Jr. was born 22 years ago weighing
2 lbs. 1 oz. He was born prematurely. His due date was
August 27, 1975. Gary died shortly after birth because his
little lungs were just to tiny to sustain life. Back in
those days we did not have the modern technology that we
have today. I am so very happy when I hear of a baby who
was as small as mine as is now able to survive.
Gary was my first born child and my parents first
grandson so he was and still is very special to us. He
is my precious little angel in the sky above that God has
blessed me with. Not a day goes by that I do not think of
him. He holds a very very special place in my heart. I
have loved him from the day he was conceived and I shall
love him for all eternity.
Even though it has been 22 years I still take the time
to celebrate the day of his birth. This day will always be
very special to me for on this day I learned the love of
being a mother and the special love a baby brings into your
heart. A love that is unconditional and that can never
be destroyed. A love that last forever.
I often wonder what his life would be like if he
had lived. Would he be married now? Would I be a
grandma now? But, in my heart, I know this was not meant
to be or he would still be with us here on earth.
I know Gary is up above in heaven with God and he is
my very special little angel. Instead of me taking care
of his needs all of these years he has been watching over
Gary is in a place of beauty without the sadness we
experience. He is a free spirit with no boundaries.
An angel who has given so much to so many.
My precious little angel, mommy loves you today,
yesterday and for all of the tomorrows. Hugs and kisses
my little one until we meet again.

Jan, My mother helped me to find your son's page. I am very sorry
you had to lose yor baby. But my mom says the babies are Angels now and
they watch over us till we can be with them. I never got to ever see my
sister because she was gone by the time I was born. But I think she
might have liked me okay if I didn't bug her and stuff. I have a
brother who will be 17 soon and he is nice and we put flowers on Jessi's
grave on her birthday everytime. My mom read your son's page too and
she was crying and stuff when she read the poems. I thought she was
hurt but she said it was a good cry. She liked your poems. Well I hope
this isn't too long a letter and I am done now. Your Friend Corey ( my
friends call me Corey) bye
