Despite his brief time with us, Gavin Jr. brought us immeasurable joy, love, and happiness. He was a beautiful gift from God, and we were so grateful for the time we had with him. His big bright eyes and little squeaky sounds filled our hearts, and his innocence reminded us of the beauty of life. While we mourn his loss, we find solace in knowing that he is not suffering anymore and that he is surrounded by the love of God. Until we meet again, our sweet angel boy, may he rest in eternal peace.
