I Learned More About My Stillborn Nephew Today

As I mentioned earlier, my brother Zach's unborn son died before he was due in March. They named him Evan with the middle name Carter.  The funeral for Carter will be on Tuesday morning. He mentioned how difficult it was to bury a son without knowing him, and it was even more heartbreaking to remember that we lost our father at an early age as well.

I'm very sorry for your families loss. My brother lost his unborn son 5 years ago and that funeral was probably the hardest I've ever been to. My condolences.
