Isaac C.

Born prematurely, with his identical twin Alex, on December 28, 2015, Isaac passed away nine days later, on January 6. “He was loveable and sassy,” his mother remembers. “He was a fighter from the beginning of the pregnancy all the way til the end. He was a favorite in the NICU; all the nurses had to come and meet him. He had a very old soul.”

He proved a playful, mischievous soul as well. “While he was in the womb, he would hide from monitors and ultrasounds. One minute, he’d be in one part of the womb and the next minute he’d be in a totally different part. Outside of the womb, he was a happy and content little guy unless it was time for Cares. During Cares he’d mean-mug anyone who’d mess with him.”
