McEwen's Funeral Home really provides very personal service, and the people there are so personable. Today's mail included a letter from them - a small card actually, and inside, as part of the card itself, is a copy of Nova's obituary. I had forgotten that they do that. I have one of Alexis' obituary from them too. A matching pair. I need to go and actually buy the book to put together his memory book. Somewhere to assemble the little bits, his pictures, the poems, his foot and hand prints, a lock of hair (which isn't a lock at all, his hair was so short, it's just a little pile stuck to a piece of tape.)

There are things that need to be done, and I'm just so far from ready to do them all. I can't even look at his pictures, any of them, but especially the pre-surgery ones. I just can't.

Donovan "Nova" LeClair

Monroe, North Carolina
Nova was our second child to be born with congenital heart defects. We lost our daughter at 12 days after open heart surgery in 2001. Nova was born 12/2/05, with Pulmonary Atresia with VSD. He lived 6 weeks after surgery, and passed away on April 6th, 2006. This blog is his story, and the on-going story of how our family is dealing with the loss of our beautiful boy.
