Do you remember this little guy? This is Trey, our little patient that passed away before he got a liver transplant. On Sunday, April 28th, Mary and her sister-in-law, Karen attended a “Celebration of Life” at Egleston Hospital which was held in loving memory of all the children who passed away in the Pediatric ICU in 2018. Mary and Karen joined Trey’s family (mom, dad, grandma, and three sisters) to celebrate Trey’s life. It was a very touching time when the lives of 40 children were celebrated.
“Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The whole of the flower,
The whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower,
The truth of the blossom
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.”
(from the Celebration program)
Trey captured my heart from the moment I met him. The smile on his face was always there and I’m convinced that, even as he is now in heaven, that smile is eternally glowing. Trey, you are loved, sweet boy, and you will NEVER be forgotten.
