Baby Casey and Her Amazing Parents

My friend Brandy birthed a beautiful baby, Casey Hope, on November 22, 2008. Casey weighed 9lbs 2oz and was 22 inches long.

Casey was given a 0-5% chance of survival.

Casey Hope passed, November 23rd, 2008 at 11:15 am. She passed onto heaven peacefully.

Amidst breaking hearts, Brandy and her husband Jon, donated all four of Casey's heart valves were able to be used to save four other babies lives. I am humbled by their generosity, courage and love. They faced every parent's worst nightmare and healed four other families.

If Roses Grow in Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
