Celebrating life stories...



Memorial created 06-14-2008 by
Audrey Hogarth
Cole and Breanna Hogarth
May 3 2008 - May 4 2008

We have been so thankful to have met so many wonderful people that unfortunately have also been through a perinatal loss.  Some of their babies were born still and some died hours or days after they were born.  Everyone's story is unique but one thing remains the same.... we love our babies so much and hurt everyday that they are not with us.

I like to think that Cole and Breanna have made friends with and are being comforted by their angels just as we have found friendship and comfort with their wonderful and loving parents.

"There is no foot so small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."



Noah Curtis Godwin Lloyd

Noah is the beautiful son of wonderful first time parents Jane and Matt.  Noah was born full term and seemingly healthy in Brampton on April 6th, 2008.  Two days later he was rushed to Sick Kids hospital for emergency bowel surgery.  The doctor's could not save him and he passed away on April 8th, 2008.

We met Jane and Matt at our first PBSO Brampton support group and then later found each other on facebook and have since become amazing friends.  We quickly discovered that we both attended Carleton Univeristy and got married on the August long weekend.  I am so thankful to have met Jane.  We get together to work on our crafts and talk for hours about our babies.

Henry Gunn

Henry is the beautiful son of Natasha and Kevin.  Henry was born still at 24 weeks on April 26th, 2008 at Credit Valley hospital.  Natasha was walking around the maternity ward for hours trying to induce labour at the same time that I was there on bedrest.  We joke about how she had to wait to get a bed because I just wouldn't leave the hospital.

Despite being at the same hospital, at the same time and going through the same high risk clinic with the same doctors we actually met through a special mommy group at the BFO.  I could not be more thankful than to have met such an amazing person.  We get together often to work on our crafts and talk for hours.  I feel like I can tell her anything and she is usually thinking the same thing.  It's absolutely crazy. 





Lukas James Anderson-Phillips

Lukas is the wonderful precious son of Jenny.  He was born still at 16 weeks on May 10th, 2007.

Jenny and I met through her son's website and then became friends on facebook.  I am so thankful to have met her.  She has been an excellent resource on this awful journey for all sorts of things from photo retouching, message boards and memorial ideas since she lost her son one year before I lost my twins.  She has shown me that the length of time that you carry your baby does not increase the love you have for them and that even as time passes you will always love and remember them.

Coltyn Tyler Wayne Kalybaba

Coltyn in the precious little boy of Yvonne.  He was born at 24 weeks on March 5th, 2008. Despite being in NICU his little body was just too premature and he passed away on March 13th, 2008.

Yvonne and I met through a baby loss group she created for her son on facebook.  I find it comforting to message back and forth with her because she went through such a similar experience as mine.  She is always there for me when I'm having a bad day.  She lives in the Kitchiner area and we are trying to plan a get together for all of our special mommy friends nearby.

Evan Thomas Whittaker

Evan is the precious son of Paula.  Evan pPROMd at 18 weeks and his mother Paula was on bed rest and managed to stay out of labour until 29 weeks.  He was born on March 24th, 2008 and passed away 18.5 hours later.

Paula and I met through her son's memorial website.  I was so touched by her story because of its similarity to Cole although she remained on bed rest for 11 weeks hoping that her son Evan would have enough fluids to develop his lungs.  Although she is a million miles away (from England) she has been a termendous support in learning about pPROM.

Dylan Alexandria Allison-Jackson

Dylan is the precious daughter of Nicola and Wesley. She was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and was born and passed away on January 31, 2008.

Nicola and I teach at the same school and I found out about the passing of her daughter Dylan when I was pregnant with Cole and Breanna but had no idea what it was like at the time for her.  After Cole and Breanna died I immediately felt the need to reach out to her.  She has become an amazing friend and confidant and I am so grateful to have her in my life.



Jason and Mary Whatley

Jason and Mary were born prematurely and died shortly after birth in 1975 and 1977 respectively.  They will always be remembered, loved, and longed for by their mother, Deborah Whatley Davidson.  Over the years, Jason and Mary have brought their mommy many wonderful gifts including the amazing moms, dads, and the 'angel babies' she has met through Bereaved Families of Ontario and other perinatal loss support groups.

Deborah has been my saving grace and I still to this day beleive that I would not have survived any part of this grief if I had not met her.  I met Deborah at BFO where she counselled Dug and I in the midst of our very fresh grief.  She then created an unofficial mommy group during the summer months when BFO was taking a hiatus that led me to meet Natasha and become closer with Jane.  Then in September she co-led our official BFO infant loss bereavement group.  Deborah continues to be a source of support and advice and I am so thankful for that.



Axel Fenandoe Oien

Axel is the precious son of Venetia and Rune.  We met through our BFO (Bereaved Families of Ontario - Halton/Peel) Infant Loss Support Group.  Our friendship continues to grow and become stronger as we go through this journey together.

"Our precious little boy-Axel Fenandoe Oien - given to us for just a short while on July 7, 2008 and taken away -o! so fast....  Know little one that you'll always be with us...alive in our hearts ...forever held close in our love's memories"



Adrian Luis DiRaimo

Adrian Luis DiRaimo, is the precious son of Cara and Bruno. Adrian was born healthy and beautiful on Jan 3rd 2005. He was 3 months and 9 days old when he fell ill very suddenly on April 12th with MRSA pneumonia. After a brave and heart-breaking battle for his life at Sick Kids Hospital that lasted 45 days; He was 4 months and 22 days old when he became one of God’s angels on May 25th 2005. "He will forever be our beautiful, blonde, blue eyed angel."

Cara was the co-facilitator for our BFO infant loss support group.  She offered us support, understanding and guidance during this difficult and painful journey.  We are so thankful that she volunteers her time to help others deal with their grief.  Our friendship continues to grow and become stronger.



Charlotte Ray Chan

Charlotte is the beautiful baby girl of Michelle and Jerome Chan and little sister to Hayley (10) and Taylor (10). Michelle had a seemingly healthy and uneventful pregnancy. At 38 weeks and 3 days at a routine check-up, Charlotte's heart was silent and she was born still on May 28, 2008.

Michelle and I met at a Markham PBSO meeting.  We made an instant connection and became fast friends.  We stay in touch through emails and phone calls and are planning on some future get togethers.
