Our little Batman Ethan Michael

On December 29th, 2014, we lost a precious part of our family. Ethan Michael was born on February 13th, 2013. At 25 weeks, 1lb 12 oz., he was a tiny bundle of joy. However, his short life was full of hospital stays and surgeries. Yet, he almost always had a smile or giggle to share. His last two weeks of life were spent in the hospital and he was put to rest on January 6, 2015 with family and friends there to say goodbye. Unfortunately, with all the expenses of hospital stays, funeral expenses, and lost time at work, his single income family is unable to afford a graveside marker and have fallen behind on many other bills. Our wish is to provide some help for these expenses and to purchase a graveside marker to properly mark his resting place.
