On September 28, 2012, God blessed our lives with a 15 ounce, 11 inch miracle we named Caleb Lucas. Although his future was uncertain, we knew he was sent by God in perfect timing. God never makes mistakes and He gives His best to His children. God gifted our family with a tiny missionary who touched hundreds of lives during his 21 days on earth.
On October 19, 2012, we had to say "see you later" to our precious baby boy. Pete and I were able to spend several hours with Caleb before he went to meet Jesus. We were able to hold him, kiss him, sing to him... It was an afternoon filled with moments that are now fond memories.
We are eternally grateful for the "bonus time" we had with Caleb. Some people never get to be parents, so we know this was an honor. We are humbled that God chose us to be Caleb's parents.
Caleb will never be forgotten. We will always be attached, as he is our firstborn and we love him dearly. Even though Caleb's residence is in heaven and ours is here on earth, we will see him again someday.
In lieu of a service, we have chosen to have this memorial page in Caleb's honor.
Special thanks to each of you who walked with us during this journey. We are grateful for each display of love and sympathy.
Peter and Elizabeth
