Kevin Joseph Laurin

One day we were selected by the Lord up above, to offer a handicapped child our love. We were thrilled as we hugged and cuddled our new son, hoping someday to fill his life with fun. Our hearts hung heavy when God made His choice, and our litttle lamb heard His voice. "Come home my child" the Lord did say. "Your work on earth has finished today." Amongst the angels he can now be found, expressing joy and happiness with his every sound. Today in a place we call heaven, soars an angel we named Kevin. Warmly remembered by your family and care providers. Private services have taken place.
