A Letter to Samuel
By Michele Priebe 6-23-04 
My Dearest Samuel,

At 25 weeks, the doctors said it was time to meet you. Early, yes, but everything looked ok. Then, when you were born, the doctor said, “I am so sorry but I see the same thing.” I will never forget the look on your Daddy’s face when he said, “Oh, dear God, not again.” We asked the doctors to bring you to us and we held you as you took your final breath. What a brief but precious time we had with you, Samuel. I take small comfort knowing you have your brother with you in Heaven. I miss you and love you very much. Until we meet again, rest well my little angel.

Love Mommy
