“When God calls little children to dwell with Him above, We mortals always question the wisdom of His love. For no heartache compares to the death of one small child Who does so much to make this world seem wonderful and mild.”

We have found that a graveside service or cremation services are the most frequent type of service requested by families that have lost a child at this developmental stage.
