Bottom: Preston accidentally dressed in girl's clothing by his Aunt Judy. Elisa planned to do a blog to tell all about how this happened after she had a good laugh about the mishap.

We have been blessed to have Elisa share all of these beautiful, touching moments with us about four tiny angels. It is with so much unbelievable sadness that I report that our littlest angel, Preston, has gone home to be with God. We must remember that we were lucky to have him thru the pregnancy and for two beautiful months after. Sadly on Friday morning as loving mother and father lay with the precious Preston, his life on earth came to an unexpected end. The determination, at this point is SIDS. We know that it affects more premature babies than others. The rescue workers and hospital assured us they did all they could and as any parent would they wonder what they could have done. In this case, nothing more could have been done. No parents could have loved a baby more, no one that met this little creature (I affectionately called him Gollum) could have been more enchanted by his perfection. We will be grateful that we were touched in our lives by this wonderful little man. To look into his eyes, it was such an honor. I can't convey how dear he "is" for he will live on in our hearts, minds, thoughts, and prayers.

At this time, we must pray, too for Elisa, Anthony, Hunter, Gabrielle, Alexandria, and older siblings Dylan and Savannah. We must pray for the strength to carry on for all of the others that were close to this dear family. I hope I have been able to do justice to this very delicate situation. I rely on the strength of God and his newest angel Preston to put down these words. This is indeed a daunting task, and I hope that I expressed the families feelings accurately. It was an honor to meet Preston, it is a privilege to know the whole family, I am touched to be able to speak for the family at this time.

With Much Tenerness,
Loving Aunt Sarah
