Casey Baptist
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Casey James Baptist who was born sleeping  on December 27, 2006  .  He was 6lbs 2 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. He was born surrounded by his loving Mommy and Daddy, family and friends .  He also has 2 big brothers Shawn and Jayson. We will remember and love him forever.

We have recently learned that I have a blood disorder called Thrombophilia, which cause blood clots.  58% of pregnacies end in miscarriage or stillbirth.  A simple blood test sooner could have prevented us loosing Casey at 36 weeks.  So please if you have lost your baby from either miscarriage or stillbirth inquire about being tested.  Not only will it save you the heartache again it may save your 

Casey is now a BIG BROTHER, Keiran James arrived on July 11, 2008 safely on Casey's wings! 








Thank you Sarah!

No farewell words 
were spoken, no time to
say goodbye, you were
gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.



i carry you in my heart
EE Cummings

i carry your heart with me
i carry it in my heart
i am never without it
anywhere i go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me
is your doing, my darling
i fear
no fate
for you are my fate, my sweet
i want no world
for beautiful you are my world, my true
and it's whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing
is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
here is the root of the root and
the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky
of a tree called life;
which grows higher than the soul or mind
can hide
and this is the wonder that's
keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart
i carry it in my heart

Together Forever!


It broke my 
to lose you
but you didn't go alone,
part of me went
with you
the day God
called you home

Hey Case
It's been 2 long months since you were safe inside my tummy and in a heartbeat our whole life changed, yes that's all it was, was a heartbeat!  One minute you were here and the next my world came tumbling down.  If someone would have listened to Mommy maybe you would be here playing with your brothers, sleeping on Daddys chest and out shopping with me but they didn't and now we are paying for it.
It's not fair and we will never understand why the one little thing we wanted so BADLY we can not have. There is not a second that goes by that you are not on my mind or in my heart.  I will make sure that everyone in this world will know that Casey James Baptist was here and always will be in our hearts.

Every tear I cry has your name on it, everytime my heart beats it's beating for you, every breath I take I take it for you. I go on for you! There isn't a second, minute, hour,  day, week or month that goes by that I am not thinkingof you and wishing I had you in my arms. 

I hope you will always know that Mommy,  Daddy, Shawn, Jayson, Grammie, Pop, Grandma, Hija and all your Aunts, Uncles and Cousins will always love you no matter where we are or what we are doing. If we moved on it's not because we forgot you, it's because we love you.


that the stars above
are really the souls
of your loved ones
keeping watch over
you all through
the night

Footprints Across Our Heart

The door is closed.  The lights are turned off.
The closet stands bare.
All the room once waiting....For the child that should be there.

Sorrow wells up inside of us.
Our tears, an endless flow
All because we miss the child...
The child we'll  never know

No camping trips, No football games,
Nor late evening talks,
No football camps, or shopping trips
No shaded mountain walks.

We have not even memories
To help through times like these.
We only have each other, 
as we go down on our knees....

To plead with you, our Father, 
To take the pain away...
To help us know your love
will guide us through each day.

We may never know the reasons
For this terrible tragedy;
But we can know you love us
through all lifes mysteries

Our time was way too brief.
It was over before it's start....
But our little angel left behind
Footprints Across Our Heart

We love you Casey James

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new,
I thought about you yesterday
and the days before that too.
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name,
all I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake
with which
I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my HEART



 Just once I wish I could have spent a late hour rocking you in my arms.  Just once i wish i could have gently lain you in your crib.  I wish I could have changed a diaper, chosen an outfit for the day, given you a bath, soothed your skin with lotion...  Just once I wish I could have heard you cry out in loneliness for me, spent time alone with you. Just the two of us, strolled you proudly through the shopping mall.  Just once I could have heard the words: "What a beautiful, healthy baby boy!!" Just Once.

Thanks Traci


A child that loses a parent is an orphan, 
A man who loses his wife is a widower,
A woman who loses her husband is a widow, 
There is no name for a parent that loses a child,
For there is no word to describe the PAIN!!!!!!!

The doctors should have listened
to what mommy had to say
then maybe you would be here
to stay and play.
we all miss you so much, we wont
be the same happy bunch.
I think about you alot,
Life will  never be the same
especially because we wont
be calling your name.
This isnt like a game,
if you lose a piece we cant
buy a new one because no one
can replace our Casey James!
You might not be here physically
but in spirit you will live forever!!
I love and miss you boo <3
Love always Hija!

Our Little Angel

You were our little angel
we loved to hold so close
the softness of
your baby skin
like the petals of a rose
We loved it when
we cuddled you and 
held you in our arms
You were our little angel
with sweet angelic charms,
We think back to memories
so precious and so few,
for one day God
had chosen you to be 
His little angel too.

Carissa a.k.a Hija - Casey's Godmother
Casey I miss you so much
& i wish u didnt have to 
leave us so soon, you
have no idea how badly
i wanted you! i couldnt
wait to play with u, cuddle u
even change smelly diapers!
i miss you so much <3
