Note: Charles was one of my cousin's twin premature sons.  He died sometime Saturday night.  My mother called me five minutes ago to tell me.  This is a memorial.

Good-bye, Charles.  You came into this world too soon and left far sooner than you should.  We never met, but I loved you all the same.  Know that you have been spared all the pain and agony that this world can bring.  I grieve and mourn for your loss.  I weep for your parents, for the despair and sadness they now know.  My heart bleeds for your twin, Christopher, who will never come to know his brother.

Your all-too-brief life reminds me, sharply, of the fragility of my own and the preciousness and miraculousness of my own son's.  Know that you go to join a good and glorious company.  Greet your great-grandfather for me and pass our love to him.  We will all come to see you, all too soon.

Good-bye small one, your time was too short.

That's very sad. I'm a preemie who survived, and I'm touched by those who don't.
